Master Chef Wolfgang Puck and his Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining Group debuted an entirely new food and beverage program at Hotel Bel-Air encompassing the restaurant, the garden terrace, the illustrious bar, in-room dining, banquets and special events. Anchored by the signature restaurant called Wolfgang Puck at Hotel Bel-Air, Puck’s vision for the property’s culinary concept focuses on modern California cuisine with European and Mediterranean influences. All menus reflect the healthy California lifestyle and showcase the best of California’s ingredients, embracing produce from local farmers’ markets, all-natural poultry and sustainable seafood.
“To be a part of this extraordinary restoration is a great honor,” said Wolfgang Puck. “The Hotel Bel-Air is one of the most beloved icons in Hollywood history and has created many wonderful memories for such a long time. It was important for us to respect its heritage, keeping menu favorites like the famous tortilla soup, while creating an entirely new concept that features the wonderful, fresh and local ingredients which surround us. The indoor-outdoor dining venue of Wolfgang Puck at Hotel Bel-Air, open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch, was given splendid new life by famed design firm Rockwell Group, and reflects the essence of its storied past. Gardens peppered throughout the grounds create an ideal backdrop for a journey through modern California cuisine with quintessential influences from Spain, France and Italy. The tranquil and idyllic setting evokes nature, while the menu follows suit with its celebration of farmers, fisheries and ranchers. From the farmers come harvest market vegetable showpieces. From the fisheries comes an assortment of sustainable inspirations from the sea. From the ranchers come hearty entrees comprised of all-natural poultry and meats. For breakfast, lunch and Sunday brunch, a sense of comfort and refined relaxation reigns supreme. At Sunday brunch, guests can enjoy a sit-down, three-course menu, including a choice of Champagne or mimosa, and an array of appetizer, entree and dessert options.
