Your last chance for original Spago decadence

After more than 25 years at the Forum Shops at Caesars, Spago will serve its final smoked salmon and caviar pizza and Chinese chicken salad on Saturday, January 27. It’s not leaving Las Vegas, just moving down the Strip a bit, set to open at Bellagio this summer. But that will be a slightly different Spago, the next evolution of a restaurant icon, not the place that changed the game in this city in the boom years of the early ’90s.

You only have a few more days to power-lunch like Nomi Malone and Cristal Connors, people. What should you order? Definitely that signature pizza ($33) and “Chinois” salad ($17) but also the spicy linguine with prawns, Calabrian chili and basil ($27); the prime burger decked out with white cheddar, red onion marmalade and garlic aioli ($21); and Wolfgang Puck’s beloved wienerschnitzel with potato salad and lemon-caper sauce ($26).
