Wolfgang Puck Restaurants in Las Vegas

Wolfgang Puck is a culinary legend who does not seem to tire of bringing new amazing restaurants into play, especially in Las Vegas where he just opened CUT, a very upscale steakhouse in the Pallazzo, itself a new all suites venue located adjacent to the massive Venetian Sands complex.

Following are descriptions of some Puck Restaurants from the official website of Wolfgang Puck:

Spago Las Vegas:

Synonymous with fine food and celebrity clientele, Spago continues to be the preeminent Las Vegas trendsetter in cuisine, service and design. Distinguished as the spark that ignited the Las Vegas culinary phenomenon, Spago is located in The Forum Shops at Caesars just steps away from the casino and Colosseum Theatre. The restaurant’s dramatic, yet warm interior design presents a sophisticated and stylish environment for the applauded California-style cuisine of Chef Wolfgang Puck. With indoor patio dining in the casual cafĂ©, considered as the best people watching in Las Vegas, and a more formal dining room with two private banquet facilities for special events, Spago provides a variety of dining options. Spago consistently dazzles in a city known for its many stars and remains one of the most popular dining spots for tourists and locals alike.

Chinois Las Vegas:

When the bold flavors of Asia meet the creativity and passion of America’s most innovative chef, Wolfgang Puck, the result is the unique Asian cuisine served at Chinois. Located inside the Forum Shops at Caesars, this sister branch of Santa Monica's Chinois on Main, originally created by Barbara Lazaroff in 1998, offers a hip, contemporary environment with additional design work by Todd-Avery Lenehan. Perfect for mixing and matching, the menu includes modern interpretations of Asian classics to produce an incomparable dining experience. Chinois also features a full-service bar and alluring private dining space.

CUT Las Vegas:

CUT in Las Vegas is the second location for master chef and restaurateur Wolfgang Puck’s critically acclaimed, award-winning Beverly Hills steakhouse of the same name in the Beverly Wilshire, a Four Seasons Hotel. Widely acknowledged as one of the most popular restaurants in the United States, CUT has raised the bar within the fine dining industry and has garnered high praise from prestigious publications including the New York Times, Los Angeles Times (Three Stars), Wall Street Journal and Wine Spectator and was named one of the top three steakhouses in America by Bon Appetit Magazine.
Located at The Palazzo Resort Hotel Casino in Las Vegas, Avery Brooks & Associates designed the 160-seat restaurant and 60-seat bar, providing a modern aesthetic to the traditional steakhouse. Adjacent to the restaurant’s main dining room is an energetic, upscale bar and lounge showcasing exclusive custom cocktails, classic drinks and a smaller menu called “Rough Cuts” featuring CUT’s popular appetizers. It provides a perfect vantage point to people watch into the bustling Shoppes at The Palazzo, overlooking the famous Barneys New York. Private dining space also is available featuring a fully retractable bronze glass wall that opens to a contemporary wine display.

Postrio Las Vegas:

Postrio Las Vegas combines the style of Wolfgang Puck’s critically acclaimed San Francisco restaurant with the romantic ambiance of Venice, Italy. Located on St. Mark’s Square in the Grand Canal Shoppes in the Venetian Resort Hotel Casino, the restaurant provides a perfect setting for both casual and more formal dining. Offering a stellar menu of seasonal American cuisine with Mediterranean influences, Postrio offers guests two dining experiences. The elegant and intimate dining room features colorful jewel tones and trademark Venetian design elements. For a more casual setting, Postrio offers a festive patio on St. Mark's Square. The restaurant also features two private dining rooms with a separate bar.
