A word from Cured
Cured – chef Steve McHugh’s first and highly anticipated gatropub opened December 2013 in the century-old building that once belonged to the president’s headquarters of the famed Pearl Brewing Company. This seasoned chef spent ten years in New Orleans as chef de cuisine for chef John Besh followed by two years at Lüke in San Antonio. Yet, his most sterling achievement has been beating cancer. After such a life-changing triumph, McHugh set out to open Cured, giving it a name that speaks to his feat as well as the artisanal cured meats hanging in view. It was with this purity of ingredients and hands-on methodology that enhanced his own healing process. This from-scratch, seasonal focus finds its to menu items like Sweet Potato Agnolotti with Bourbon Brown Sugar & Sage and Slow Cooked Heritage Hog with Smoked Andouille & Okra. McHugh has found a way to implement “gastronomic giving” by donating $1 from every charcuterie board order to a different charity each quarter.

    The restaurant itself is unique because of the concept as well as the building. The food was excellent. we ordered the flat iron which was grilled to specification and served hot and the Snapper with a unique olive crust which was also excellent and shared a mixed green salad presented crisp and cool. WSe shared before our entrees a charcuterie plate of Duck ham, a pork jalapeño rillouette and lamb loaf. as well as restaurant made mustards and pickles. Al were wonderful. We are looking forward to going back with friends.

    Each in our group has differing tastes- and all were very happy with entree choices. It was the first time at Cured for us locals. Our server was excellent, the timing for our drinks, appetizers and entrees was superb. She did not interrupt, instinctively knew just when we needed her. She helped us choose wine, and offered tastes of her suggestions. A true professional! All staff were worked together, keeping an unobtrusive eye on the tables. The FOOD- works of art. The charcuterie we split down to the the VERY last bite. My squash blossom entree was delicious and visually appealing. That statement applies to ALL the selections. The portions were just right. Truly healthy & hedonistic eating!

    My husband and I are vendors at the Pearl Farmers Market every Saturday but we rarely have time or energy after market to enjoy the wonderful restaurants at the Pearl. But with our 13th anniversary, we wanted to treat ourselves to an evening of relaxation, fun, romance and yummy eats, of course. We were greeted warmly and interacted with several different staff members. Each was knowledgeable about the building, the food preparation, pairings and so on. Our waiter Macey was excellent and explained the menu to us clearly, answering questions and making recommendations without being obtrusive. The food and drinks were excellent! Our taste buds were very happy and so were we. It was a very special evening. Thank you, Cured. We love y'all!

    Great location, with lots of "movers and shakers" from the local neighborhoods. Food was excellent. Very tasty and not "filling" to the point you're miserable. Great place for people that enjoy tasty selections and modest portions. Not for the tight wallet! At first, I wasn't keen on the noise level, but you get used to the fact that you have to speak loudly to everyone at the table. Our waiter, Mark, was exceptional. Obviously, not his first rodeo! We'll definitely be back....

    My husband and I were very pleased with our whole experience at Cured. The service was great and the food was even better. The menu had such original items that it made it difficult for us to select only a few items to eat. We didn't have one menu item that we didn't enjoy. We can't wait to go back and next time we want to try brunch.

    Must go in with an open mind - there aren't many places with food like this. For instance, I'm a big fan of pastrami but I have never even DREAMED of pastramied bone marrow. (It was incredible, FYI.) Trust your servers and you'll always be well rewarded!

    I ordered the Lyonnaise salad expecting a good size lunch salad. I would have preferred to pay up to $15. and served a bigger portion This should have been on the menu as an appetizer. It was literally 3 bites for $10.00. It was delicious, but not very satisfying. My friends had mixed reviews about their burgers. Out of the six of us, only one was completely satisfied with her meal. Most said they would not go back, as they believed their meals were overpriced for what they received.

    This was our 3rd time at Cured, and it was fantastic again! Had an amazing selection of charcuterie (chicken liver mousse, smoked duck ham, lamb belly), then fantastic salads (beet, mixed green, and watermelon). Couldn't decide on just 3 entrees for the 3 of us, so we ordered 4 to share (shrimp, foie gras, sausage, and wagu ravioli) - all were amazing! Even found some room for dessert, too (cantaloupe & angel food cake)! Definitely coming back!

    Growing up on north-European peasant food among immigrants in Chicago, I found all the pickled goodies, pork fat spreads and homemade sausages to be soul food. Plus interesting beers and cocktails, plus excellent service from Britt. Our whole party had a great time. We ordered lots f small portions and shared all of it. The fried baloney sandwiches are spectacular. It's not your mother's Oscar Meyer pink rubber on Wonder Bread.

    Lots of great reviews of this place, but if thought it was just ok. Charcuterie good, other lunch items good, but nothing exceptional. Service mixed - two different waitpersons, forgot to bring things - took quite a bit of time just to get ketchup for a burger. Interior ok, but "sink" used to keep water bottles looked old and was leaking. We'll try again, maybe we just got an off day.

    Cured is located in the heart of the Perl Brewery complex. Housed in the old administration building, the Cured team has created a truly unique dining experience. The food was very good - We really appreciated how each item was presented with a variety of complementary flavors. I highly recommend the 6 selection Charcuterie plate for two people. I really enjoyed the: Smoked Duck Ham, Spring Onion Sausage, and the smoked veal-wurst. The beer selection is great and the bar makes a solid cocktail. We had the "Summer Melon" for dessert. It was different from what I imagined but the blending of complementary flavors made the dish truly memorable. I definitely recommend. Cure is a great place to start off an evening on the town

    The restaurant is beautiful, industrial chic that fits in so well in the Pearl. Using the aging room for the meats as decor is genius. The service was excellent, casual but professional and her recommendations were perfect. The cocktails were great, we had the 1975 and the Cured, both fresh and light, lots of local beers too. The food was overall very good--especially the bone marrow-- but the charcuterie plate really stole the show. It was special. We chose 6 meats and then had 4 smaller menu items but I think next time we would choose 9 meats and enjoy more cocktails! Favorites on the charcuterie plate for me were the pork belly and pork pate, for my husband it was the duck ham and the apple jalapeno pork rillettes.
