We’re talking about the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles, of course, where the names of stars of radio, film, TV and every other kind of entertainment medium you can think of are emblazoned on Hollywood Boulevard’s sidewalk.
One form of entertainment, however, – that of the Celebrity Chef – is pretty new to the Walk of Fame, so it gives us great delight to announce that Borgata Chef Wolfgang Puck has been named as a recipient of a star on the Walk of Fame for 2017.
We’re sure this has a lot to do with the success of Wolfgang Puck American Grille here at Borgata, but Puck’s TV appearances, acting appearances, other world famous restaurants (such as L.A’s own Spago) and numerous bestselling cookbooks and products may have also played a role.
In the end, that means Puck’s name will be forever enshrined on the boulevard sometime next year (no official date has been announced).
“I’m thrilled to have been selected to be on the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” Puck said in an official statement after the announcement. “To have my legacy immortalized by this iconic landmark, and to know that one day my grandchildren will be able to see my name there on the star, is an honor, not only for me, but also for my family.”
That cinches it. The best way for a celebrity chef to make the Walk of Fame – open a restaurant at Borgata. And, you know, get really famous for your cooking.
We’re kidding, of course. Borgata is honored to be part of the great careers of Puck and Flay and congratulate Puck on this achievement.
We can’t think of a better way to celebrate a great Borgata chef.
