More than thirty years after opening his groundbreaking, genre-defining restaurant Spago in LA, Wolfgang Puck is playing around with the dining format itself. His new test kitchen, The Rogue Experience, is located at his corporate headquarters in Hollywood and offers a different tasting menu every night. The food will be prepared by a rotating cast of chefs from Puck’s innumerable restaurants, under chef-in-residence Dave Beran, and sometimes including Puck himself.
“It was always a dream for me to have a central kitchen where I could cook with all of my chefs, from Beverly Hills to Singapore,” said Puck. “Finally I have an intimate space here in Los Angeles where together we can create memories and thought-provoking experiences for our guests.”
The experience will last between two and three hours, with no need for ordering. Dietary requirements can be accommodated, with warning. Tickets cost $155 per person, not including tax or tip, with an additional $85 for a wine pairing.
