Executive chef Lee Hefter leads Spago's kitchen, where influences include California, Asia, Italy and France. Clean lines and blocks of black and white define Spago's modernized dining room, whose makeunder includes ditching garish dressings in favor of minimalist dishware and contemporary, if a bit incongruous, wall art. A California tasting menu ranges from six courses ($95) to eight courses ($145), but if you opt to order a la carte, you'll find dishes like pan seared cod with a ragout of shelling beans, or handmade agnolotti with butternut and kabocha squash. Dine on the charming, semi-covered outdoor patio, with its modern, oversized fireplaces and strategically positioned olive trees. Despite built-in heaters, it does get chilly on colder nights, so opt for an indoor table toward the glassed-in exhibition kitchen.

Wolfgang puck. What more needs to be said. I mean really. Spago is located in the posh beverly hills so it's always advised to dress to impress because everyone else sure will be. Everything on the menu looked amazing.

Bf had the Big Eye Tuna and Hamachi "Chirashi Box"* with Salmon Pearls, Yellowtail Tartar, Jalapeño-Yuzu Gel. He loved it. Me, not so much. Not a big sashimi/raw fish fan. Got the salmon and the steak dish and both were excellent. Ended with a traditional austrian cake that had layers of meringue and passionfruit. Was delicious! Definitely recommend!

So I know Spago is a place to "be seen" but honestly, it was still so amazing. We got there early, had a few drinks at the bar (and to people watch #noshame) and then we were escorted to our table. We were seated right in front of the glassed in kitchen and had an awesome view of the craziness. To start I had the veal tartare. It arrived in bones and legit changed my life. It was basically butter as I spread it over my crackers. Then my dining partner and I said "let's do the Côte de boeuf" so we did. And damn was it amazing. Cooked to perfection and served beautifully. All in all this was an amazing experience. I loved the decor of the restaurant and the service (thought not 100% consistently) was still pretty awesome. I absolutely loved Spago and would definitely come again.
