Famed chef Wolfgang Puck, whose flagship restaurant Spago ignited Las Vegas’ dining scene 25 years ago, will open a newly renovated Spago at Bellagio Resort & Casino in Spring 2018. Now Bellagio guests can enjoy an exemplary fine dining experience after watching O by Cirque du Soleil.
"Just as Spago is credited with beginning the Las Vegas culinary revolution, Bellagio transformed the casino-resort industry when it opened with the first collection of world-famous chefs and restaurants," said Wolfgang Puck in a statement. "My partners and I are thrilled to join the Bellagio family and introduce our new Spago to the thousands of international guests the resort welcomes daily. We reimagined Spago in Beverly Hills more than 20 years ago and look forward to doing the same in Las Vegas."
Bellagio President and COO Randy Morton said in a statement, "Wolfgang Puck is known worldwide for delivering exceptional restaurant hospitality. From cuisine to service and, of course, style, he is intricately involved in all aspects of the business, providing first-class culinary experiences for his guests. Puck's high standards are the same as those to which we hold our resort culinary program, making this an ideal partnership to continue elevating our dining scene."
The restaurant will feature globally influenced seasonal fare as well as signature Wolfgang Puck dishes such as grommet pizzas topped with salmon and caviar. For lunch and dinner, guests will have the option to choose from an a la carte menu or Puck’s multi-course California Tasting Menu. A bar menu will ignite your taste buds with Puck’s favorites, as well as an artisanal cocktails and an extensive wine list.
Inspired by Spago’s original flagship location in Beverly Hills, the new venue will have a sleek look and feel. Guests will enter the restaurant from Via Bellagio on the resort’s north side, arriving in Spago’s lounge and bar. The focal point of the lounge will be a spectacular bar and wine room lit by a neon light fixture made specifically for the space.
In the main dining room, guests can catch incredible views of Bellagio’s famed lake through floor-to-ceiling glass windows. Two gorgeous chandeliers will highlight the room’s modern art pieces.
Perhaps, the most exciting place to sit at the new Spago will be the patio, where guests can take in another exceptional view of Bellagio with its gorgeous fountains.
The restaurant will take the place of Todd English’s Olives, which will close this winter.
