Let's meetup at Spago, Wolfgang Puck's flagship restaurant, for dinner!
We've enjoyed it many times but this will be our first visit since the interiors of Spago and the entire menu have been re-designed. Reservations are hard to get. Everyone's saying it's all wonderful. Let's find out!
From the website at www.wolfgangpuck.com:
"We're pleased to welcome you back to the new Spago! The legendary, flagship restaurant of the Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining Group is now open with a completely new menu and design. The re-opening comes during Spago's 30th anniversary and in celebration, the master chef has re-invented the entire menu with his signature farm to table philosophy, heightening the iconic California cuisine Puck catapulted to stardom. Spago's new design from Waldo Fernandez complements the food with its clean and simple aesthetic, incorporating natural elements to add an organic feel. Spago's co-founder/co-owner Barbara Lazaroff created the original design for Spago in West Hollywood and Beverly Hills. Spago continues to set the standard for cuisine, service and style and is consistently recognized as the ultimate in fine dining. Spago is the recipient of the AAA Four Diamond Award and received two stars in The Michelin Guide-Los Angeles edition, one of only three restaurants in the city to win this coveted distinction. In 2010, 2011 and 2012, the restaurant earned the prestigious Wine Spectator Grand Award, the publication's highest honors."
The scores from zagat.com are: Food-27, Decor-26, Service-26 (of a possible 30). Approximate cost is $80.
The Zagat review:
“What’s left to say” about this “quintessential LA” hub in Beverly Hills – “the jewel in the crown” of the Wolfgang Puck empire – that’s “going strong after all these years” turning out “knock-your-socks-off” Californian cuisine in a “glamorous”, “glittering” setting sprinkled with “aging celebs”, “power producers and socialites”; “everyone gets treated royally” and “with a little luck, you can get a handshake from the man himself” – in sum, there’s “no finer place” to “impress”, as long as you can handle the “sky-high” tabs; P.S. Spago has reopened after a lengthy renovation with a cleaner, more modern look and an updated menu with a farm-to-table bent."
Spago is located at the corner of Wilshire Boulevard and Canon Drive in Beverly Hills.
There's a valet out front of course, and also several public parking lots run by the City of Beverly Hills in the immediate area.
A $20 deposit through Amazon Payments holds your spot and will be refunded through this website after you attend or if you cancel at least 24 hours in advance.

Join us on a delicious and beautiful December night at Spago!
