Chances are you’ve been to, or at the very least seen, a Wolfgang Puck restaurant. And if you live in Beverly Hills (lucky you, by the way), or in West Hollywood where it once stood for 30 years, chances are you’ve been to, or at the very least seen the one that started it all: Spago. It’s a staple in the Southern California culinary scene, but not just because Puck is a celebrity chef. Puck’s use of California-centric ingredients and his creative preparations studded with global influence (primarily from Japan, Italy, France, and Mexico) revolutionized “California cuisine” as it stands today. If you want to know what the term really means, this is where you’ll find out… but you’re going to have to pay for it.
