Dinner, Friends & Wolfgang Puck | Hotel Bel-Air, Los Angeles

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.

While I was spending a few days in my hometown, my friends whom I have known from my school days suggested that we have dinner at Wolfgang Puck at the Bel-Air Hotel. It was a clear-cut answer of “Yes, please”. We dolled up, and then headed to a magnificent dinner at the Hotel Bel-Air.

Pre-Dinner Cocktails

🍸 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.

Wolfgang Puck at Hotel Bel-Air serves a marriage of European and Californian flavors. This style of fusion cuisine has been an integral part of the West Coast Gastronomy scene for decades.
