Wolfgang Puck to launch new, stunning gourmet temple Spago at Bellagio Resort & Casino in Las Vegas
Las Vegas – 22 August 2017 –
Wolfgang Puck’s legendary flagship restaurant Spago, recognized for igniting Las Vegas’s dining scene into a culinary epicenter, will open its doors at Bellagio Resort & Casino in spring 2018. Marking 25 years since the fine-dining phenomenon debuted in Las Vegas, Puck’s now revolutionary restaurant heralded the era of celebrity chefs and haute cuisine that continues to define the city’s restaurant scene today.
The new restaurant will offer an elevated experience, featuring an open-air patio with prime views of the iconic Fountains of Bellagio. The restaurant takes the place of Todd English’s Olives, which will close this winter.
Globally influenced seasonal fare and signature Wolfgang Puck touches, such as gourmet pizzas topped with salmon and caviar, will be the focus of Spago’s market-driven menus, which will be presented with the outstanding level of service for which the restaurant is known. For lunch and dinner, guests will have the option to choose from an à la carte menu or explore the best of the West with Puck’s multi-course California Tasting Menu. A special bar menu of Wolfgang Puck favorites also will be available, along with an artisanal cocktail program and extensive international wine list to accompany the chef’s culinary masterpieces.
Designed by architects Massimiliano Locatelli and Annamaria Scevola of CLS Architetti, and inspired by Spago’s original flagship location in Beverly Hills, the new venue will have a sleek look and feel. Guests will enter the venue from Via Bellagio on the resort’s north side, arriving into Spago’s chic lounge and bar. Adorned with brass fixtures, rich smoked-oak wood floors, leather chairs and couches, the focal point will be a spectacular bar and wine room lit by a stunning neon light fixture commissioned for the space.
In the main dining room, beautiful floor-to-ceiling floating glass windows will surround the space, imparting picturesque views of Bellagio’s famed lake. Two exquisite chandeliers will highlight the room’s modern art pieces, while bold accents featuring rich hues of black iron, velvet walnut and polished grey will express a contemporary aesthetic.
The restaurants most coveted seats will undoubtedly be on the patio, where guests will enjoy a front row view of the magnificent Bellagio Fountains as they dine al fresco.
