With multiple James Beard awards, two Michelin stars, and a sizeable portfolio of successful restaurants, his name is synonymous with the term "master chef" (per California Museum).

After 15 Years, Celebrity Chef Wolfgang Puck Once Again has a Houston Restaurant

Way back in 2004, Wolfgang Puck opened a location of his Wolfgang Puck Gourmet Express chain in the Carillon center in the Westchase District.
