Wolfgang Puck to Launch Reimagined Spago at Bellagio Resort

The roof of the Bellagio Las Vegas caught fire late Thursday night, resulting in multiple closures across the Las Vegas Strip.

MGM Resorts has announced that celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck will be re-opening the doors of a new, reimagined Spago in spring 2018, this time at the Bellagio Resort & Casino

Spago, Puck’s flagship restaurant, debuted on the Las Vegas strip 25 years ago at Caesars Palace. Many restauranteurs and gastronomists credit Puck and Spago with ushering in the age of celebrity chefs and haute cuisine that defines the Las Vegas restaurant scene today.

The new restaurant aims to provide an elevated dining experience (both literally and figuratively)—seats on the new open-air patio with views of the Fountains of Bellagio will doubtlessly be the most sought after. Architects Massimiliano Locatelli and Annamaria Scevola of CLS Architetti designed the interior and layout of the new Spago, drawing inspiration from the restaurant’s ancestral location in Beverly Hills. Diners will enter the venue from Via Bellagio on the resort’s north side before entering Spago’s lounge and bar. A bar and wine room serve as the focal point of the restaurant, both adorned with brass fixtures, smoked-oak wood floors, leather chairs, couches and a neon light fixture.

The main dining room itself has floor-to-ceiling floating glass windows, two chandeliers to highlight the room’s modern art pieces and accents cultivating a contemporary aesthetic.

This reimagined Spago will continue to embrace the upscale California cuisine that put the original restaurant on the map years ago. Globally influenced seasonal fare will be the focus of Spago’s market-driven menus, with signature Wolfgang Puck touches of course, such as gourmet pizzas topped with salmon and caviar. For lunch and dinner guests will be able to select from an à la carte menu or experience Puck’s multi-course California Tasting Menu. A special bar menu will also be available, alongside an artisanal cocktail program and an extensive international wine list.

The restaurant assumes the place of Todd English’s Olives, which will be closing this winter. Wolfgang Puck himself said "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."
