Wolfie will have a signature restaurant called guess what? “Wolfgang Puck at Hotel Bel-Air–how original, and he’ll be carefully controlling room service and all the in-house F&B. Can you say, “designer pizza”? After all, it’s the Italian pies that put the chef on the map when he opened the original Spago in West Hollywood many moons ago.
As any informed foodie knows that spot’s long gone, replaced by Spago Beverly Hills–probably one of the most successful of Wolfie’s empire and ginormously popular with super stars, moguls, mavens and visitors who venture there in hopes of seeing stars.
Table aren’t as hard to score as they once were thanks to the recession. There’s was a time when you could only get in at hours like 6 PM unless of course you were somebody or knew what name to drop. Spago’s worth the money though, it’s consistently excellent. I go there often, especially since said recession when it’s easier to get a table. We’ve even managed to get a primo booth a few times. Saw a lot of celebs, too. Contrary to popular belief they actually eat the food. Even anorexics can’t resist it.
Anyhow dear readers, just thought you’d like to know about this culinary developement. I can’t wait for Hotel Bel-Air to reopen. We’ve enjoyed many good meals and overnights there and hope to do so once again.
