Wolfgang Puck Kitchen Opens

Wolfgang Puck’s newest cookbook, Wolfgang Puck Makes It Healthy: Light, Delicious Recipes and Easy Exercises for a Better Life.

South Coast Plaza’s Wolfgang Puck Bistro is now Wolfgang Puck Kitchen, with a brand new menu and look. The celebrity chef’s Orange County-exclusive restaurant specializes in comfort food made from the best-available ingredients. The new menu features several of Wolfgang’s signature recipes and favorites such as the Chinois Chicken salad, salmon main courses, salads and of course, pizzas. Also available at Wolfgang Puck Kitchen is the restaurateur’s newest book, Wolfgang Puck Makes It Healthy: Light, Delicious Recipes and Easy Exercises for a Better Life, in which he reveals the secret to his weight-loss transformation and keeping up his energy.

We found many similar themes between Wolfgang’s inspirational cookbook and menus from his restaurants across the globe. The Summer Vegetable Pizza recipe is a fresh seasonal take on his famous pizzas. He encourages us to top it off with whatever looks great at the local farmers’ market. The book’s Grilled Salmon with Cucumber-Yogurt Sauce and Warm Potato-Vegetable Salad recipe is all about contrasts – warm, cool, tangy and sweet, similar to the Roasted Salmon main course at Wolfgang Puck Kitchen.

The fresh contemporary design – light-hued woods and clean lines – gives the restaurant a welcoming, casual and relaxing atmosphere perfect for meeting up with a business partner, taking the family out to lunch or grabbing a quick solo bite at the bar.

Wolfgang recently made a special appearance at our Wolfgang Puck Kitchen. Guests were able to try out some of the restaurant’s delectable dishes including signature crab cakes, smoked salmon pizza and avocado toast all prepared by Wolfgang himself. To top it off, he signed autographs on guest’s copies of Wolfgang Puck Makes It Healthy.

Wolfgang Puck Kitchen is open from 11am daily.
