Spago Beverly Hills Restaurant Review

: An extensive renovation in 2012 started a new chapter for Spago Beverly Hills, but Wolfgang Puck's flagship dining destination remains LA's quintessential restaurant. Puck, an Austrian native who also trained in France, made a splash in the City of Angels at the famed Ma Maison, following up with the grand opening of Spago on Sunset in 1982, Spago Beverly Hills in 1997, and numerous other restaurants across the country and beyond. Spago's design from Waldo Fernandez features shades of white and dark brown. Booths have been added to the dining room, along with a larger glass dome in the ceiling and a clear glass wine cellar along one wall. The patio has a retractable roof as well as two outdoor fireplaces and new (and smaller) olive trees. There is also a larger private dining room. Meanwhile, Puck, executive chef Lee Hefter and chef de cuisine Tetsu Yahagi have created a menu with a slightly more contemporary approach. Classic dishes, such as the smoked salmon pizza and wiener schnitzel, can be found on the lunch menu. At dinner, start your international (Asian, California, Italian) culinary voyage with the excellent and fresh "chirashi sushi" with big eye tuna, hamachi, salmon pearls, red snapper and tosa soy gelée, or the veal filet mignon tartare and smoked mascarpone presented in marrow bones. Continue with one of the several pastas on offer, like handmade agnolotti, or main dishes such as a grilled New York steak with honey-glazed radishes, carrots and sauce bordelaise. Augment your meal by choosing "From the Garden" a.k.a. side dishes, perhaps roasted maitake mushrooms. Desserts have included the "Rock, Pebble, Chocolate" of almond cream, warm truffles, cool truffles and bon bons. Guests can also choose from a pre-theater menu ($65) or California Tasting Menu ($145, plus $75 or $115 for optional wine pairings). The comprehensive wine list is a veritable book worth poring over. Note that a Bar Bites menu is available at the bar only. You may encounter a lamb merguez "hot dog" on a sun-dried tomato roll.
