Famed chef Wolfgang Puck wants Las Vegans to know being a local in this city has its benefits. Through the "Compliments of the Chef" program, the Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining Group ensures all locals will be treated like VIPs for their continued enjoyment and valued support of each of the five Las Vegas restaurants.

Launched to better serve the needs and time constraints of local patrons, the "Compliments of the Chef" program offers locals priority reservations and preferred seating at all five restaurants. Additionally, local guests also receive a sinfully delicious complimentary dessert.

The five Las Vegas restaurants include Spago at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, featuring the innovative culinary talents that made Wolfgang Puck’s famous Beverly Hills establishment a favorite among Hollywood’s elite; Italian classics with traditional and contemporary influences at Trattoria del Lupo at Mandalay Bay; Asian fusion delights with European influences at Chinois at the Forum Shops; globally inspired contemporary American cuisine at Postrio at the Grand Canal Shoppes at the Venetian; and modernized twists on traditional "bar & grill" selections at Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill located within MGM Grand.
