LA Weekly's Description
When you sit down at the table, gazing out at the Griffith Observatory glowing in the distance, WP24 really does seem like a Chinese restaurant on a different level: tiny, crunchy triangles of the best shrimp toast you have ever had; baked dumplings stuffed with fish; and steamed buns stuffed with bits of seared foie gras. Klaus Puck, Wolfgang's brother, may have come over to suggest an Austrian red, whose high acids and soft tannins are perfect with this slightly sweet food. You may have had slippery rice noodles rolled around braised Kobe-style ox cheeks, overcooked but pleasant cubes of roast suckling pig with a quince puree, or a delicious hot and sour soup enriched with toasted almonds, winter squash (sweet corn during the summer) and shreds of king crab. Are those fireworks erupting out of Dodger Stadium? They just may be. Suddenly the mandatory $80 three-course, prix-fixe menu seems almost reasonable.
Tips from foursquare
How does Gaga like her Chinese? With panoramic views from the 24th floor! Keep an eye out for stars (real and Hollywood) as you sample Wolfgang Puck's sky-high dumplings and re-roasted pork belly.
WP's fine-dining resto's a 24th-floor, panoramic-windowed ode to Asian cuisine, featuring deliciousness like the spicy schezuan chile/ fried garlic/ Calamansi lime/ black bean dust "Angry Lobster."
WP24 is an alluring reason to experience the celeb chef’s Asian fare: Crispy suckling pig to start, maybe a side of Hunan spicy eggplant & a 2-pound “angry lobster” sounds especially tempting.
Sip the gin-based cocktail "Lady From Shanghai" while watching the sunset wash over the San Gabriel Mountains.
While you are observing the spectacular panoramic views of the city, you are able to enjoy the dynamic menu at the same time. Enjoy one of our many Asian influenced dishes like our "tiny dumplings."
