Roasted beet and goat cheese salad

Roasted beet and goat cheese salad (December 5, 2012)

Fellow chefs scoffed when Wolfgang Puck dared to open this branch of his celebrated Beverly Hills restaurant in the gastronomic desert that was Vegas back in 1992. But 20 years and a culinary revolution later, who’s laughing now? Meet the celebrated chef at Spago on Dec. 11 as the iconic eatery celebrates its 20th anniversary in Sin City. And from Dec. 10 through 14, sample favorites from the original 1992 menu: smoked salmon pizza with dill crème fraîche, chives and caviar; weinerschnitzel with warm fingerling potato salad; and kaiserschmarrn with strawberry sauce. Ahh, Wolfgang — thanks for coming to Vegas.
