Mark Andelbradt Named Executive Chef of Spago Las Vegas

Mark Andelbradt Named Executive Chef of Spago Las Vegas

Spencer Rudow Takes the Helm at Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill at Downtown Summerlin

 mark-andelbradt

Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining Group announced today that Mark Andelbradt will step into the Executive Chef role at Spago within The Forum Shops at Caesars.  Spencer Rudow will take the Executive Chef position at Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill at Downtown Summerlin, formerly held by Andelbradt.

 

“When we began looking for someone to fill the executive chef position at Spago Las Vegas, I thought to myself, “Who can fill Eric Klein’s shoes?” but I was glad that I did not have look very far,” said Wolfgang Puck.  “Mark’s proven culinary skills and leadership abilities made him the ideal person to take the reins of the Spago kitchen. I am excited to see how he will put his personal touch on the restaurant and how it will continue to evolve. I think our guests will be pleased with what we have in store.”

 

Andelbradt brings more than 20 years of culinary experience to his new position. A 1995 graduate of Kendall College in Evanston, IL, the Chicago native began his career in far-reaching parts of the world including kitchens at The Regent in Hong Kong and Villa Crespi in Piedmont, Italy. In 1996 he earned his Italian Cuisine Certificate from the Italian Culinary Institute in Turin, Italy.

 

Andelbradt returned to his home of Chicago to work with chefs Rick Tramonto and Gale Gand, first as chef de cuisine at Brasserie T, then in 1999 was promoted to executive sous chef at Tru. Andelbradt played an instrumental role in the properties’ opening, its rise to receiving four-star reviews and its eventual Relais & Chateaux status. In early 2001, he decided to move to New York, where he landed a coveted sous chef position at Daniel, the four-star kitchen of acclaimed chef and restaurateur Daniel Boulud. In 2002, he was honored with the Bertolli Sous Chef Award, which celebrates the nation’s top 10 rising star sous chefs and/or chef de cuisines.

 

Andelbradt’s growing reputation as a chef and leader within the industry, landed the attention of Stephen Starr, of Starr Restaurants, in 2004, which led to his next positions at Morimoto in both Philadelphia and New York. While he was chef de cuisine in Philadelphia, Andlebradt was also tapped to utilize his organizational and management skills in the opening and development of the New York location. Upon opening, he soon shifted his culinary skills to Morimoto New York as chef de cuisine. It was in this position in 2006, that Andelbradt was named a Rising Star Chef by Star Chefs New York.

 

After many years on the east coast, Andelbradt was ready to move west. After two years as executive chef at TAO Las Vegas, Andelbradt found his home with Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining Group, in 2014. Andelbradt’s first role within the company was as executive chef of Postrio at the Venetian. Later that year, he ventured to the Las Vegas suburbs and opened Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill at Downtown Summerlin. Now, Andelbradt fills the shoes left by Eric Klein, Spago’s last reigning executive chef, and is the third person to hold this position in the restaurant’s 24-year history. (David Robins 1992-2006, Eric Klein 2006-2016)

spencer-rudow

Filling the executive chef role left by Andelbradt at Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill at Downtown Summerlin is Spencer Rudow.  Most recently Rudow served as executive sous chef at Spago, working alongside Eric Klein, a position that he held for the past nine months, refining his skills under one of Las Vegas’ most beloved chefs. Prior to his position at Spago, Rudow worked as a line cook, junior sous chef and sous chef at Cucina by Wolfgang Puck within The Shops at Crystals and at Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill at MGM Grand. Rudow hails from Baltimore, Maryland and attended West Virginia University before studying at the French Culinary Institute in New York as well as ALMA Cooking School in Parma, Italy.

Chefs and Co-owners Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger Create
North and South Strip Prix Fixe Menus for
Restaurant Week June 15-26


You Can Eat This and That to Help End Hunger in Las Vegas


 Two acclaimed chefs, two distinctive locations and one common objective: fighting hunger in Las Vegas. As part of the ninth annual Restaurant Week, Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger will for the first time have the opportunity to double their commitment to Restaurant Week by including both of their Las Vegas locations – Border Grill Mandalay Bay and Border Grill inside The Forum Shops at Caesars.

“Supporting the community has been part of our DNA since we began, and we are excited to participate in Restaurant Week once again,” explains Susan Feniger. “The great thing about this year is that for the first time we are able to do it from one end of the Strip to the other. We decided to create two different menus at the two restaurants with the hope people support this great cause twice.

The special prix fixe menus offered will go to support Three Square Food Bank, and both restaurants will be donating a portion of each prix fixe meal served from June 15 – 26 to support Southern Nevada’s only food bank. Guests are invited to experience the bold and authentic cuisine at great prices while helping end hunger in Las Vegas. “It’s the perfect opportunity to discover and taste what we do here in Las Vegas while also making a big difference in people’s lives,” adds Milliken.

Rotella Gallery Debuts David Yarrow’s Mesmerizing Exhibit of Black & White Works from his 2014 Spear’s Award-Winning Book “Encounter”

ROTELLA GALLERY

ROTELLA GALLERY DEBUTS DAVID YARROW’S MESMERIZING
EXHIBIT OF BLACK & WHITE WORKS FROM HIS
2014 SPEAR’S AWARD-WINNING BOOK ENCOUNTER

Acclaimed Photographer’s Work Now Available at Rotella Gallery Inside The Forum Shops at Caesars

Rotella Gallery, the definitive fine-art photography gallery in Las Vegas located at The Forum Shops at Caesars, adds to its impressive collection of Resident Artists with David Yarrow’s limited edition prints. Yarrow, who claimed the Outstandingly Produced Book award at this year’s Spear’s Awards, will display his award-winning prints as well as several new, previously unseen works for guest viewing and purchase.

David Yarrow is an acclaimed photographer who has travelled to some of the world’s most isolated locations to capture unique images of wildlife, indigenous communities and landscapes.

A central tenet of David’s photography is that “behind every picture there is a story.” He will stop at nothing to secure mesmerizing pictures, using black and white photography to enhance contrast and create timeless and soulful images. Bouts of frostbite, plane crashes and confrontations with dangerous wildlife do not weaken David’s drive and passion to capture shots that transcend mainstream offerings. With regards to his upcoming residency at Rotella Gallery, Yarrow notes, “Robert Rotella has a vision that I greatly admire. He is a passionate man who craves excellence in himself and others. I immediately identified with that and am so looking forward to working with him.”

Having quickly gained the attention of art photography aficionados from around the world with their impressive collections featuring the works of Robert Rotella and Art Wolfe, as well as guest artist Michael Levin, Rotella Gallery is thrilled to add the mesmerizing black and white photography from David Yarrow. “David Yarrow is a masterful storyteller whose medium is photography,” explains Robert Rotella. “His imagery evokes feelings of drama, emotion, and sensuality. We are honored and delighted to present his work.”

Born in Scotland and now living in London, David, 48, began his photographic career recording the world’s greatest sporting events. As a 20-year old, while still a student at Edinburgh University, he had already been named ‘Young Scottish Photographer of the Year’ and covered the Mexico World Cup Finals for The Times. His shot of Maradona holding the trophy aloft has become an iconic image of that tournament. He was an accredited photographer for Allsports, later part of Getty Images, before turning his lens on the natural world to capture its endangered beauty.

David’s Encounter collection was launched in November 2013, and has already been shown in iconic UK-based locations including London’s Saatchi Gallery, the Phillip’s Gallery and, most recently at Christie’s global headquarters (8 King Street). The collection has gained international exposure with shows in New York and Hong Kong

David’s photographic travels have given him genuine insights into key environmental and geopolitical issues. This knowledge is put to practical use in his long-term commitment to Tusk Trust, the African conservation charity, for which he is an affiliated photographer. Tusk, whose Royal Patron is HRH the Duke of Cambridge, receives 10% of sales from David’s prints and books to support its 53 projects in 18 African countries (www.tusk.org). Since November 2013, David Yarrow Photography has contributed over $100,000 to this leading conservation charity. David is the author of two fine-art photography books: Nowhere (2007), and Encounter (2013).

Rotella Gallery is located at The Forum Shops at Caesars in Las Vegas (3500 South Las Vegas Blvd, Suite R30, Las Vegas, NV 89109/702-431-6030).

To learn more about Rotella Gallery visit; www.rotellagallery.com and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/rotellagallery. Follow on Twitter at www.twitter.com/rotellagallery.

About Rotella Gallery:
Since its inception, Rotella Gallery has remained committed to offer Fine Art Photography as collectible and unique. Our two current artists, Robert Rotella and Art Wolfe, bring subject matter to life in often idiosyncratic and unpredictable fashion. In true artistic form, Art Wolfe has culminated his talent as a painter and as a master photographer and created his latest body of work entitled “Human Canvas.” The collection is offered in “Signature Editions of 200” and “Exclusive Editions of 12”. Robert Rotella, whose work with macro-photography is unrivalled, has traveled the globe to capture an often overlooked and unseen world. His compelling images capture everything from the ethereal grandeur of Arizona’s canyon and mountain landscapes to the fleeting beauty of bleeding heart flowers refracted through a morning dewdrop. His flagship offering comprises edition sizes of only 100.

While Rotella Gallery is currently comprised of two artists it is not limited to exclusivity with its artists. Finding David Yarrow and his stunning subject matter has been a welcomed addition to our gallery. We believe David’s work will strongly complement Rotella Gallery’s commitment to offering the medium of Fine Art Photography as “collectible” and “unique”. David’s images evoke an audience response that is nothing short of “awe”. With unique stories behind each image, we believe David’s addition to the gallery will offer our collectors a tremendous opportunity to acquire highly collectible imagery that are hand signed, numbered and available through both our New York and Las Vegas galleries. His edition sizes currently remain at only 60. With plans to expand our presence on a global scale, we feel our current and future collector base will revel in delight as our offering is broadened.
