Wolfgang Puck Wire

Wolfie%20at%20Uncork%27d_125.jpg“Nobody in the food world can deny that Wolfgang Puck’s decision to open a restaurant here was the first major step in Las Vegas becoming the world-class dining destination it is today,” writes Al Mancini. He interviewed Puck about the era of celebrity chefs he ushered in when he opened Spago at the Forum Shops at Caesars 20 years ago in December. On those first weeks, when no one was in Vegas, Pucks says: "They used to come up to the open kitchen and say ‘Do you have any ribs, any burgers?’ I said ‘Oh my God, I don’t know what I got into with this Vegas thing here, it’s crazy.’[AlMancini.net]
