As of July 9th, Spago will be closing its doors for a complete revamp from top to bottom, starting with its menu and design. As the restaurant approaches its 30th anniversary, the owner felt need to keep the restaurant up to date, so a remodel was indeed, necessary. “I’ve always believed that change is good and it’s important to us to re-invest in our restaurants to keep them fresh and current,” stated Wolfgang Puck.
As for the décor, Waldo Fernandez will be designing the project, but much different from the owner and chef Barbara Lazaroff, who was once married to Wolfgang Puck. Lazaroff helped to design the original space. But the look is not all that will be done over, a new menu will be unveiled. “When Spago re-opens this fall, we will debut a totally new menu which will be revealed opening night. For all of our guests who have brought us joy and success and supported us over the years, you will have only weeks left to enjoy our classics before they disappear. Now is your chance to make your reservations to taste the old favorites.”
The old favorites on the menu include: Crispy Veal “Wiener Schnitzel” with fingering potato and young mache salad, House-Smoked Salmon Pizza with shaved sweet onions; dill crème fraiche and salmon pearls; Kaiserschmarrn with strawberries; Spicy Tuna Tartare in sesame miso cones and Roasted Chino Farms Beet Layer Cake with warm sautéed goat cheese, toasted hazelnuts and shallots-citrus dressing.
In 1982, the original Spago opened in West Hollywood, followed by relocation in 1997 to Beverly Hills.
