The name Wolfgang Puck is synonymous with the best of restaurant hospitality and the ultimate in all aspects of the culinary arts.
Puck began cooking as a child, at his mother’s side. She was a chef in the Austrian town where he was born, and with her encouragement, Wolfgang started his formal training at fourteen years of age. As a young chef he 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 took the advice of a friend and left Europe for the United States. His first job was at the restaurant La Tour in Indianapolis, where he worked from 1973 to 1975.
In 1975, Wolfgang came to Los Angeles and very quickly garnered the attention of the Hollywood elite as chef, and eventually part owner, of Ma Maison in West Hollywood. His dynamic personality and culinary brilliance that bridged tradition and invention made Ma Maison a magnet for the rich and famous, with Wolfgang as the star attraction. He had an innate understanding of the potential for California cuisine, and was pivotal in its rise to national attention during the late 1970s.
In 1998 Wolfgang opened his first restaurant in Las Vegas followed by four more including Cucina by Wolfgang Puck at The Shops at Crystals. Cucina serves fresh Italian favorites and features a menu of Wolfgang’s famous flatbreads along with pasta dishes in a setting overlooking Crystals’ legendary collection of fashion boutiques.
The Shops at Crystals doesn’t only offer world-class fashion, it also celebrates masters in art and food. Whether your medium of fancy is sculpture, photography or painting Gallery Row houses the work of world class artists Richard MacDonald, Rodney Lough Jr. and Dale Chihuly. Once you’ve perused the art and fashion, sit down for noshes and cocktails at Cucina by Wolfgang Puck.
