Another Wolfgang Puck

A Wolfgang Puck Express restaurant will be part of the renovated Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel, opening in a new open-air arcade late this year.

The casual eatery offers several of the star chef's signature items, including Four Cheese Pizza, and Goat Cheese Salad with Arugula and Radicchio.

The first Wolfgang Puck Express opened last year as part of the Ward Entertainment Center.
