Wolfgang Puck Gets a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

Becomes second chef ever to receive this honor

Puck was one of 33 star recipients for 2017, joining Amy Adams, Ryan Reynolds, and John Legend.

Wolfgang Puck is seeing stars, but in this case not the Michelin kind. The Austrian-born celebrity chef and restaurateur was named one of 33 recipients to earn a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles for 2017.

Puck is the second chef to ever receive this honor, following Bobby Flay, reports Restaurant Hospitality.

In a statement, Puck says, “I’m thrilled to have been selected to be on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. 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.”

Other honorees this year include Ryan Reynolds, John Legend, Tyra Banks, and Eva Longoria.

The chef recently celebrated the 10th anniversary of his first steakhouse, CUT Beverly Hills.
