The other famous Austrian-born celeb brings noisy, colorful Cal-eclectic cuisine to the masses. – The Scene
Taking a break from his upscale restaurant empire, Wolfgang Puck is conquering the midpriced market with this family-friendly chain. Once inside, it's as if someone tossed confetti--virtually no surface remains unscathed from the colorful mosaic tiles that decorate the place. Service is surprisingly subdued and pleasant, given the in-your-face decor.
Skip the prettily plated spring rolls, with their oily wrappers and bland dipping sauce. Instead, start with the tortilla soup--shredded chicken and onions engulfed in a glorious, spicy tomato base with a swirl of goat cheese. Pizzas are plentiful, the crusts soft and light, without a drip of grease or a drop of flavor. The mushroom pizza has a microscopic amount of tomato sauce, but a nice blend of cheeses that actually manage to differentiate themselves on the palate, topped with a generous sprinkling of porcini for a hearty, woody flavor. For those old enough to drink wine, skip Puck's signature red, a coarse mouthful.
