Spago Closing July 9 For Menu, Design Overhaul

Say sayonara to Spago's tuna tartare
Wolfgang Puck dropped a bomb on his adoring dining public a few months ago: he announced the closing of his Beverly Hills flagship, Spago. Sadly, that day is almost here - July 9 to be exact. The good news is that it's not permanent. The restaurant will be completely overhauled, from the menu to the floors, set to reopen in the fall. "I’ve always believed that change is good and it’s important to us to re-invest in our restaurants to keep them fresh and current," Puck says in a press release. In Beverly Hills, 30 is the new 40 when it comes to facelifts.

And now for the bad news. For anyone addicted to Puck's signature dishes like smoked salmon pizza and the delicious kaiserschmarrn - you only have one month to taste them again, as they won't make a return on the new menu. Maybe someone can convince the chef to serve spicy tuna tartare in sesame miso cones at his eponymous restaurant at the Hotel Bel-Air?
