I'll Have Nine Slices of Cheesecake Please

Pomegranate Mojito
Rotisserie Chicken with Mashed Potatoes

I have been salivating at the thought of Wolfgang Puck for quite some time now, so you can imagine how excited I was on Saturday when we arrived. I was told by Erin Meehan to try the Pomegranate Mojito, so I ordered that right as I sat down. It was ridiculously refreshing, and very tasty, I will definitely order that again next time. For dinner I ordered the Rotisserie Chicken with Mashed Potatoes, it did not leave me unsatisfied either. The portion was large(see half of a chicken above), and very tasty. I was impressed with their mashed potatoes because they were not too rich. Most of the time when I order mashed potatoes at a nice restaurant, they are great but entirely too rich. These tasted like mom's homemade mashed potatoes, fluffy and light. My favorite part of the entire meal ironically, was dessert. Now I am going to note again that I am usually not a dessert person, unless it's insanely good. This cheesecake was absolutely, hands down THE BEST cheesecake I have ever had. First of all, it was crustless. I know some of you are rolling your eyes and furrowing your brows thinking "The crust is the best part, is she high?" But I was also skeptical about the idea of a crustless cheesecake. But when it arrived at the table, the slice of cheesecake was sitting on top of a thin layer of sugar in the raw crystals, so you still got the sugary crunch with the creamy cake. To top that off, they creme bruleed the top of the cake. I am literally at a loss for words at this point on how to describe how yummy this was. Pooh Bear was fighting me for bites, and by the time we were done I wanted another slice. I can tell you that I will be making random stops at Wolfgang Puck now just for a slice of their cheesecake, and for me that is unheard of. Overall, everything was wonderful, including the price. I was shocked when the bill came and it was only $50. We had cocktails, dinner AND dessert, which is a very reasonable price considering the quality.

Shammy Says "I see multiple trips to Wolfgang Puck in my future"


  1. Yay! I'm glad you liked it! I'll have to go back and try your meal and dessert. Of course, I will have to get the pomegranate martini again.

  2. Yes, that thing was so good! Thanks for the recommendation! I am going to get the meatloaf for sure next time! And perhaps two slices of cheesecake...
