One more walloping change is rumored to be landing at the Hotel Bel-Air when it opens next summer. Wolfgang Puck!! Gayot reports that L.A.’s “Godfather,” as Scarpetta capo Scott Conant calls him, is putting one of his own restaurants into the hotel, much like’s done at a number of hospitality locations throughout the U.S. For now, the rumor that Spago itself will be moving to the legendary property has been squashed, although Wolf’s famous flagship is about to undergo some changes itself. Let us know if you’ve heard the chatter about Puck bringing a project to Hotel Bel-Air, in our comments.
