Chef and restaurateur Wolfgang Puck announces the opening and release of tickets to his new restaurant, The Rogue Experience. Located within the test kitchen of the Wolfgang Puck corporate headquarters in West Hollywood, CA, Rogue presents an intimate, and untraditional tasting menu experience for eight guests each night.
Following the build out of the test kitchen in 2015, Wolfgang began to explore the possibilities of transforming the space into an experimental chef’s workshop. His vision was to create a collaborative space where he and his chefs could develop new menu items, explore new techniques and service styles, and conceptualize beyond the familiarity of their daily restaurant routine.
“It was always a dream for me to have a central kitchen where I could cook with all of my chefs, from Beverly Hills to Singapore,” said Wolfgang. “Finally, I have an intimate space here in Los Angeles where together we can create memories, and thought-provoking experiences for our guests.”
Wolfgang’s mentor, the late Raymond Thuilier of Baumanière put it best in the forward for Wolfgang’s first cookbook – “Wolfgang Puck is a chef with a sense of the harmony and balance of cuisine and, even more, an imagination that leads him to seek new culinary heights to satisfy those who appreciate gourmet cooking.” Nearly four decades later, Wolfgang’s imagination is the driving force for his new projects which continue to challenge expectations, and push the boundaries for the future of food.
While menus will vary from week to week, guests can except an immersive two-and-a-half-to-three-hour dining experience in which traditional tasting menus and ordering are put aside. Each night, test kitchen chef-in-residence Chef Dave Beran will collaborate with a rotating group of chefs from across Wolfgang’s international empire. On occasion Wolfgang, as well as other creatives will join in on the evening show. The first series of experiences will draw inspiration from 1982, the year Wolfgang opened the original Spago on Sunset Boulevard, and a moment in culinary history that changed the face of fine dining.
The Rogue Experience is located within the Wolfgang Puck Test Kitchen at 8687 Melrose Avenue, Blue Building, West Hollywood, CA 90069. Guests have the option of one 7:30PM seating, available every Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday evenings. Saturdays are available for full buyouts only. Seats can be reserved at https://rogue-exp.tocktix.com/ beginning Wednesday, April 19 – Saturday, May 13. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
