When Wolfgang Puck’s legendary Spago opened 25 years ago in Las Vegas, the level of influence he and the restaurant would have on the city was unimaginable. The revolutionary restaurant is recognized for igniting Las Vegas’s dining scene into a culinary epicenter. Wolfgang’s relentless drive to transform continues today as the chef debuts the new Spago Las Vegas at Bellagio Resort & Casino, bringing two internationally renowned brands together.

“For us, it’s the perfect synergy between Spago and Bellagio,” said Wolfgang Puck. “The resort’s clientele and my longtime guests align perfectly with Spago’s exceptional offerings and elegant atmosphere. It is truly a match made in heaven.”

Bellagio President & COO Randy Morton said, “Wolfgang holds himself and his team to unrivaled high standards in order to create extraordinary culinary experiences around the world. We are thrilled to welcome Spago to Bellagio at its new home within our award-winning culinary portfolio.”

New California Cuisine
Spago is inspired by California living with its casual elegance and farm-to-table ethos. Wolfgang hand selects seasonal ingredients to create the restaurant’s market-driven menu, featuring the chef’s signature fare paired with modern technique and creative elements. From popular Spago dishes to new dishes offered only at Bellagio, guests have a wealth of options to choose from for lunch or dinner.

Bellagio Exclusives – In addition to signature Spago dishes, Wolfgang has created specific dishes just for this new destination. The Baja Kanpachi Crudo brings a burst of acidity with pickled radish, yuzu gel and hibiscus ponzu, rounded out with creamy avocado and crunchy tapioca crisps. A Saffron Risotto features Santa Barbara Spot Prawns, housed in a special tank within the resort.

Lunch on the Lake – Spago’s lavish lakeside lunch options include a selection of Puck’s signature wood-fired pizzas, handmade pastas, salads and sandwiches as well as Wolfgang’s Famous Veal “Wiener Schnitzel,” served with marinated cucumbers, fingerling potato salad and m?che salad.

From the Grill – Wolfgang brings his own signature to the Las Vegas steak dinner, allowing guests to indulge in prime meats, such as Wagyu and Japanese Ribeye carved tableside, and grilled fish such as the Turbot with charred baby leeks with gremolata.

Delightful Desserts – Spectacular seasonal desserts serve as a grand finale including the Tart Mascarpone Cheesecake and the soon-to-be-Spago-signature, The Strawberry, featuring almond-salted streusel, strawberry confit and micro basil plated with an artful and whimsical presentation.

Bar Bites – In addition to the full menu, Spago’s bar serves an exclusive selection of snacks such as Lemon-Herb Blinis with Caviar and Crème Fraiche and Spicy Tuna Tartare in Sesame-Miso Cones.

Sensational Sips
Innovation and familiarity may seem like contradictory notions, but that juxtaposition is what defines Spago’s cocktail menu. Crafted with house-made infusions, artisanal spirits and fresh herbs, these libations are inspired by Wolfgang’s culinary philosophy of embracing creativity using the world’s finest ingredients.

Creative Cocktails – Spago offers modern takes on favorites such as its version of the tiki cocktail called “Trouble in Mind” using Bourbon instead of Rum, complemented by Montenegro Amaro and Allspice Dram. The “Rogue Sour,” Spago’s version of the whiskey sour, adds depth of flavor with house-made cinnamon buckwheat honey and Amaro.

Worldly Wine – The globally inspired collection spans many regions of the world, highlighting an impressive number of vintages from the United States and Italy. Similar to the menu, the wine list will be seasonally inspired, starting the summer months with a strong selection of Rosé wines. In addition, the list features nearly one dozen wines from Wolfgang Puck’s private label, a collection of food-friendly wines that celebrate the spirit of food and life for which the chef is known.

Chocolate and Design at Four Seasons Hotel Milano

With the reopening of its seasonal Sunday Brunch, Four Seasons Hotel Milano will unveil the new décor of its Chocolate Room. This year, Pastry Chef Daniele Bonzi is paying tribute to Milan’s famous reputation for design, with the creation of an art exhibition.

No less than one ton (2,200 pounds) of the finest Valrhona chocolate was necessary to create this new decor featuring geometric shapes, pop-culture and tape art elements as well as three-dimensional installations. Among these, guests can enjoy an interactive sound wave wall filled with chocolate desserts and a reproduction of the famous Needle, Thread and Knot statue by celebrated artists Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen.

“Besides fashion, Milan has also positioned itself as an important cradle for contemporary art and design, and you can clearly feel these influences when seeing the numerous art exhibitions in town, or by simply walking around the city or visiting the annual Furniture Fair. This is what has inspired me to create this multi-sensorial art experience. Just as all the paints and materials used in art, chocolate is a fabulous matter to work with, providing endless ways of use, with various natural tones and textures,” explains Pastry Chef Bonzi.

Certainly one of the most loved Hotel’s highlights since its creation in 2007, this hand-decorated delicacy has successively taken the form of a Ratatouille-themed lounge, a chocolate factory and a tropical forest featuring jungle-inspired vegetation and exotic animals. The Chocolate Room can be visited during the traditional Sunday Brunch and booked for private events, chocolate tastings, breakfasts and afternoon breaks.

A must-go occasion for guests and locals alike, the Hotel’ Sunday Brunch provides a unique moment to indulge in traditional Italian dishes served buffet-style including typical recipes as Milanese-style risotto and cutlets, gourmet selections of cold cuts and cheeses, delicious salads and roasted meats. And with its children’s play area and babysitter service, it is also a perfect occasion to spend a relaxed meal with the entire family.

Located in a dramatically 15th century reborn convent, Four Seasons Hotel Milano offers the perfect destination to spend a family holiday. Thanks to its position in the city’s bustling Fashion District, the Hotel allows an easy access to Milan’s historical quarter of Brera and the iconic Duomo, while for those looking for a shopping escape in the world leading couture houses, the Hotel’s Spa is a serene after-shopping respite to be pampered in with exclusive signature treatments.
