Lonely Planet review

Wolfgang Puck scores again, this time with signature Cal-Asian fusion served in a chic Far East–meets–West Coast setting. Pair the firecracker shrimp with a sugared tower of mochi (pounded rice cakes) or a premium glass of cold sake. It’s only a deal at lunch. Also recommended: 808 Chef Jean-Marie Josselin dials Hawaii on the coconut wireless daily to procure the raw goods that fuel this Pacific Rim delight. Don’t neglect the ‘deconstructed’ ahi roll. Cypress Street Marketplace Charge made-to-order salads and pizza, Asian stir-fries and healthy wraps to your ‘smart’ card, then pay as you exit the food court. Tables overlook the casino floor. Trevi Fountain-side trattoria races ahead of the pack with fresh pastas, wood-fired pizzas and Italian sodas; convivial atmosphere, attentive service.
