Acknowledged as the spark that ignited the Las Vegas culinary phenomenon, Spago has long been a trendsetter in cuisine, service and style while attracting a celebrity clientele. The 4th annual Sip and Savor dine-around event held at Spago on September 14 was a chance to enjoy exquisite sips of Wolfgang Puck’s favorite wine, champagne and spirits and savor the extraordinary cuisine of all of Puck’s Las Vegas restaurants while meeting the chefs from Cut at The Palazzo, Lupo by Wolfgang Puck at Mandalay Bay, Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill at the MGM Grand, Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill at Downtown Summerlin and Cucina by Wolfgang Puck at The Shops at Crystals.

The event was also a sendoff to Chef Eric Klein, who after nearly a 10-year stint as Spago’s executive chef, moves on to head up the Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining Group Catering in Los Angeles. Klein hands over the Spago kitchen to the able hands of Mark Andelbradt, who will move over from Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill at Downtown Summerlin.

It’s always great to enjoy a stellar event while contributing to a worthy cause, and the noble foundation benefitted by the proceeds for this event was Keep Memory Alive, an organization committed to improving the lives of patients and families as they navigate the challenges of brain disorders, including Alzheimer’s.
