Savour a taste of Beverly Hills at Spago restaurant pop-up

Fine dining connoisseurs are in for a delightful culinary treat this November, with the launch of a pop-up version of celebrity Chef Wolfgang Puck’s legendary Spago restaurant at Four Seasons Hotel Bahrain Bay.

The one-off event will bring a true taste of Beverly Hills to Manama, and offers guests a unique opportunity to sample specially crafted tasting menus from the kitchen of one of the world’s most glamorous restaurants. Spago is renowned as one of Los Angeles’ hippest places to see and be seen, with celebrity guests flocking to enjoy its inventive, market-driven menus, buzzing atmosphere and exceptional service. The two-day pop-up event at Four Seasons Hotel Bahrain Bay will transform the Hotel’s CUT by Wolfgang Puck steakhouse into a faithful representation of this iconic eatery from Thursday 8th to Friday 9th of November. Each and every detail of the Spago experience will be authentically recreated, from the cocktail list, to the staff uniforms and – most excitingly – the two Michelin-starred cuisine by Chef Tetsu Yahigi, who will be flying in from the States to cook up a storm in the kitchen alongside Brian Becher – Executive Chef, Wolfgang Puck restaurants at Four Seasons Hotel Bahrain Bay.

The pop-up will be serving Puck’s signature creative California fare, paired with a complimentary matured grape list. Diners are invited to embark on a nine-course culinary journey encompassing handmade pastas, fresh seafood, all-natural meats, and an array of tempting desserts. Highlights include goat ricotta gnocchi, prepared using freshly made goat ricotta, medjool dates, toasted pistachio and wild field mushrooms; beluga caviar served with market cauliflower hummus, black lemon blini and lamb belly macaron; and steamed wild black sea bass with beet-ginger ponzu, edamame and wasabi tobiko. These are just a few of the mouth-watering dishes guests can look forward to experiencing as part of the extensive tasting menu. Spago Chef Tetsu Yahigi said: "I am very excited to cook in Bahrain because I will have a great opportunity to introduce our Spago Beverly Hills cooking style to the guests of Bahrain.”

Spago pop-up will be hosted at CUT by Wolfgang Puck, Four Seasons Hotel Bahrain Bay. For more details, or to make a reservation, call the Hotel on +973 1711 5044.
