Spago’s opening in 1992 ushered in a new era of dining in Las Vegas. With celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck at the helm, the opening introduced the city to California fare from a name-brand chef at the Forum Shops at Caesars. Others followed including Emeril Lagasse opening his New Orleans Fish House and the now defunct Mark Miller’s Coyote Cafe at the MGM Grand. Now more than 40 celebrity chefs call Las Vegas at least a part-time home.
In January, Puck closed his Spago after 25 years at the Forum Shops at Caesars in favor of a fountain-side retreat inside the Bellagio, serving lunch and dinner. Keep track of all the changes going on with the new Spago here.
