With views befitting royalty, and celebrity-worthy cuisine, Spago, in the Four Seasons Resort in Wailea, sets the bar for upscale dining in paradise. The menu clearly reflects Wolfgang Puck’s affection for fusion creations, revealed in Cantonese duck and chinois lamb chops, with enthusiastic nods to local tastes with dishes such as ahi poke in cones. As a result, diners enjoy the very best of Asia and Hawaii. Finish the experience with Kaiserschmarren, a heavenly souffle-style pancake decked out with fresh strawberries; it’s Chef Puck’s signature love note to his Austrian homeland.
