Wolfgang Puck
Updated on 18 October 2015

The name Wolfgang Puck is synonymous with the best in restaurant hospitality and the ultimate in culinary arts.

As a young chef, Wolfgang worked in some of France's greatest restaurants, including Maxim's in Paris, the Hotel de Paris in Monaco, and the Michelin 3-starred L'Oustau de Baumanière in Provence. At the age of 24, Wolfgang left for the United States and took his first job was at the restaurant La Tour in Indianapolis, where he worked from 1973 to 1975.

Moving to Los Angeles in 1975, Wolfgang very quickly garnered the attention of the Hollywood elite as chef and eventually part owner of Ma Maison. From Ma Maison he went on to create his first flagship restaurant, Spago, originally located in West Hollywood on the Sunset Strip. From its opening day in 1982, Spago was an instant success, earning many accolades including the prestigious James Beard Foundation Award for Outstanding Chef of the Year, twice, in 1991 and 1998, and the James Beard Foundation Award for Restaurant of the Year in 1994. Wolfgang is the only chef to have won the Outstanding Chef of the Year Award twice!

In 1983, following the success of Spago, Puck went on to open Chinois on Main in Santa Monica and in 1989, Wolfgang opened his third restaurant, Postrio, in the Prescott Hotel off San Francisco's Union Square. In 1997, Wolfgang moved Spago to an elegant setting on Cañon Drive in Beverly Hills. His Beverly Hills menu blazed new ground, with a combination of updated Spago classics and newly conceived items created by the award-winning talents of Managing Partner/Executive Chef Lee Hefter and Executive Pastry Chef Sherry Yard. Spago Beverly Hills recently garnered two coveted Michelin Stars, one of only three Los Angeles restaurants to achieve this accolade.

Then In May 2014, Wolfgang marked his first foray into the Middle East with CUT at The Address Downtown Dubai. This modern American steak restaurant caters to true steak connoisseurs offering prime dry and wet-aged beef including selections from the United States and Australia, plus 100% Japanese Wagyu beef.
