I have appreciated Chef Wolfgang Puck ever since he made his Los Angeles culinary introduction with Spago on Sunset, back in the 1980s. Thinking on those days, my friends and I would spend our whole ‘part-time mall job paycheck’ for dinners at upscale or trending restaurants. Spago was one of them and made a huge impact on how I perceived cuisine and the dining experience. Since I moved from Southern California in 2001, I have tried to keep up with the outstanding restaurant scene in Los Angeles but it truly is hard to keep up with.
While I was spending a few days in my hometown, my friends whom I have known from high school suggested that we have dinner at Wolfgang Puck at the Bel-Air Hotel. It was a clear-cut answer of “Yes, please”, so we headed to a magnificent dinner at the Hotel Bel-Air.
My friends and I started off with cocktails inside the hotel bar and made our way into the Wolfgang Puck Restaurant, when our reservation time arrived. From there we took part in a sumptuous and lavish dinner of classic dishes, served with great and friendly attention. Wolfgang Puck to this day, does not disappoint on his excellent cuisine and hospitality. 🍽
