Wolfgang Puck’s Spago at the Forum Shops at Caesars in Las Vegas offers what is undeniably some of the best food in Las Vegas. Executive Chef Eric Klein cooks memorable dishes, pouring his heart and soul into every Spago specialty. He puts his passion — and the best fresh, organic, made-from-scratch ingredients — into creating a one-of-a-kind dining experience.

While Spago offers more casual seating on its patio, for an unforgettable treat opt for the more formal dining room. Dinner is an occasion you won’t soon forget.

Surrounded by the warmth of a dining room designed for comfort and style, you can best experience Spago by ordering the six-course tasting menu for $95 per person. For $155 per person, you can include wine pairings with each course. The wine pairings are spot-on and are well worth the extra cost.

Spago’s menu is seasonal, enabling Chef Klein to use the freshest ingredients from the region. In addition to local vegetables and produce, he makes weekly excursions to the Los Angeles area to shop the farmers markets and seafood markets. The way Chef Klein blends tastes and brings out the best in even the simplest ingredients is truly an art. He touches every sense with a dish — you see the gorgeous fresh food and smell the enticing aromas, leaving your mouth watering before you even take that first magical bite.

The tasting menu changes depending on what Chef has in the house at the time of your visit, and offerings depend on what’s in season and the current restaurant menu. A recent six-course tasting menu at Spago Las Vegas featured the following culinary masterpieces:

  • Flatbread with figs, house-made Burrata cheese, and a 25-year balsamic
  • Yellowfin sashimi, avocado, Daikon radish, Yuzu-Wasabi, and Hamachi on a crispy rice cake with marinated cucumber and hearts of palm with a soy ceviche-ginger vinaigrette
  • Bartlett pear and fig with house-made cheese, prosciutto, balsamic, olive oil, and baby arugula
  • Hand-rolled ricotta gnocchi in a black truffle butter sauce (Click here for more on the gnocchi experience at Spago)
  • Halibut with basmati rice and coconut-infused vegetables
  • Oregon free-range pork, New York strip with bone marrow crushed fingerling potatoes and Armagnac peppercorn sauce, along with red wine braised short ribs with roasted vegetables
  • 15-layer mocha cake for dessert, served with Kiralyudvar Tokaji Cuvee, a 2002 Hungarian dessert wine
