Additionally, in honor of the 20th anniversary of Wolfgang Puck’s Spago inside The Forum Shops, Bon Appétit Editor-in-Chief Adam Rapoport and pioneering chef Wolfgang Puck are set to co-host a spectacular four-course, wine-pairing lunch to celebrate the milestone anniversary of Spago at The Forum Shops at Caesars on May 10, 2012 from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
Credited with igniting the fine dining revolution in Las Vegas, Puck made his debut in 1992 with the opening of Spago.  This bold move marked a departure from the oversized buffets of old Las Vegas and traditional casino dining rooms, paving the way for other celebrity chefs to open signature restaurants of their own, transforming Las Vegas into the worldwide culinary destination it is now.
To celebrate the restaurant’s 20th anniversary and the dining landscape of Las Vegas today, the master chef and Bon Appétit will host this exclusive event to kick off the sixth annual Vegas Uncork’d extravaganza.  The lunch will also feature Spago’s first Executive Chef David Robins and Spago’s current Executive Chef Eric Klein.  While enjoying an impressive meal prepared by the trio of chefs, guests also will hear candid personal anecdotes including Wolfgang’s memories of his first night opening in Las Vegas.
Space is limited for this intimate lunch gathering and tickets are available today for purchase at www.vegasuncorked.com. Ticket price is $150 per person.
