Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill
Indulge your palate with signature dishes and handcrafted specialty cocktails that made James Beard Award-winning chef Wolfgang Puck a pioneer in California cuisine. Some of my favorite dishes include the classic wood-fired pizzas, gourmet salads, and of course, spaghetti and meatballs. I also encourage you to save room for dessert —you won’t be disappointed! Race participants receive a complimentary glass of Wolfgang Puck Chardonnay or Cabernet with a purchase of an entrée from Oct. 31-Nov. 3, 2019 when you show your race bib or medal.
