This is the movie capital, after all. Big productions with plenty of stars and special effects are expected. Wolfgang Puck has just that for us at Spago Beverly Hills. With executive chef Lee Hefter, he plays the starring role in the big restaurant show in a multimillion dollar set artistically designed by Barbara Lazaroff. The stage welcomes many guest stars, special appearances and, of course, extras. No wonder it's the preferred ground for paparazzi of any description. Restaurateur, actor and producer Wolf Puck (the other star native of Austria) and Hefter present an international (French, Asian, California) voyage. Based upon multiple experiences, the tasting menu is the royal way to go if you want to fully explore the potential of Spago, especially if Puck is in action and displays all his art. As appetizers, try the smoked salmon on lemon-herb blinis, the Japanese hamachi sashimi and Hudson Valley foie gras done three ways, including one marrying this luxe indulgence with pan-roasted apples and currants in a mousse. Entrées can take you to the Far East with a Hong Kong-style steamed salmon or to Northern California with roasted rack and loin of Sonoma lamb. Nostalgia floats around with a few of Wolfgang's Childhood Favorites---de rigueur for an Austrian boy---such as Wiener Schnitzel or a spicy beef goulash with sautéed spätzle. As one can imagine, with all these ingredients, this is the hottest ticket in town and the box office suggests making reservations one month in advance.
