Get excited about dining at the Shops at Summerlin, the shopping center under construction south of Red Rock Resort. Wolfgang Puck will open a restaurant there.
Puck, who was at Spago at the Forum Shops at Caesars for his Sip and Savor event that kicked off UNLVino, joked that his partner David Robbins wanted a restaurant closer to his house, so he would be opening one of his concepts at the shopping mall.
A rep for Puck confirms that Puck is about 98 percent sure that he will sign a lease there. News should be signed, sealed and delivered in about a month.
The restaurant won't be Spago, but probably a bar and grill concept.
Puck is on the verge of opening Cut in Dubai the first weekend in May. He also confided to Eater Vegas that he wants open Spago in Doha, Qatar, and Geneva, Switzerland. He also plans a refresh of Chinois in Los Angeles.
Rumors have pointed to two local restauranteurs bringing concepts to the Shops at Summerlin, but so far, only Red Robin, Crazy Pita and a mystery Resto Lounge have been confirmed.
