Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining Group has announced the opening of Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill at the 400-acre Downtown Summerlin retail and entertainment complex. This will be Puck’s seventh restaurant in Las Vegas, but his first located off the Strip. Slated to open in Fall 2014, the 200-seat space will incorporate materials paying homage to the desert beauty and towering red cliffs of the Red Rock Canyon. The menu will feature seasonal salads, sandwiches, grilled meats, seafood, handmade pasta and pizzas. Puck, who opened his first Vegas restaurant, Spago, in 1992 said, “We have such strong loyalty from locals who have been, and continue to be, a driving force behind the success of our six Strip restaurants. It’s exciting for us to move off of the Strip and become an integral part of the neighborhood.”
