Appointed Executive Chef
At Pendry West Hollywood - CA, USA
Andelbradt's extensive culinary resume spans global roles with the Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining Group including executive chef at Wolfgang Puck's Spago at Bellagio Resort & Casino. Andelbradt's journey alongside Chef Puck has taken him to Las Vegas, Shanghai, and beyond—managing daily culinary operations and collaborating with Puck to create the globally influenced fare for which his legendary Spago is best known.
The highly anticipated Merois and Ospero at Pendry West Hollywood will celebrate the open-air allure of the City of Angels and exemplify the undeniable cachet synonymous with Wolfgang's name. Puck came to Los Angeles from Europe in 1975 and has since gone on to influence the way Americans cook and eat by combining classic French technique with California and Asian influences. Guests at Pendry West Hollywood can expect signature Puck dishes as well as seasonal and innovative menu offerings influenced by Executive Chef Mark Andelbradt's bold touch, redefining fine dining on Sunset Boulevard.
Prior to joining Chef Wolfgang Puck and the Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining Group, Andelbradt also worked under some of the other most esteemed toques in the world today—from sharing the kitchen with Chicago's Rick Tramonto as chef de cuisine at Brasserie T and later opening Tramonto's two Michelin-starred restaurant, TRU, as executive sous chef, to working with chef Daniel Boulud at DANIEL New York as well as with Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto at two of his restaurants in Philadelphia and New York, and even serving as personal chef for Academy Award-nominated director, M. Night Shyamalan. His innovative mindset, natural ability and exceptional management skills have brought him success in the kitchen, as well as in overseeing operations, menu development, and more.
