An eclectic décor highlights the offerings at Wolfgang Puck's signature Colorado restaurant.
L. A.–based superchef Wolfgang Puck had to adjust more than just a recipe or two when he launched his newest Spago at Beaver Creek's Ritz-Carlton. "It's tricky to get a soufflé to rise at 7,000 feet," he says.
Blending the restaurant's modern décor into the Colorado-rustic interior of the hotel was no simple feat, either. For that, designer Tony Chi juxtaposed urban materials such as polished metals with rock walls and limed oak tables. Barstools wrapped in animal hides and Rocky Mountain murals by Colorado photographer John Fielder complete the mix.
