Wolfgang Puck works a ton and has a really expensive espresso machine

Wolfgang-puckFriday's Calendar section devotes its regular "My Favorite Weekend" column to the daily doings of superstar chef Wolfgang Puck, who almost choked me up with his admission that when he has friends in town he has his wife bring them to wherever he happens to be working that day and "hopefully, I'll get the chance to sit down and spend some time with them."

That is until I read about the $6,000 espresso machine he has in his house and thought, "OK, so that's what all this hard work is about." And who knows? Maybe a really good espresso machine is worth it. And besides, no matter how disappointed Puck's friends might be to not see much of him, surely they aren't disappointed at the prospect of eating in one of his restaurants under his care.

Other Puck favorites include: Angelini Osteria, Matsuhisa (where he enjoys the miso cod), Nokia, Griffith Observatory, LACMA and the Getty Center.
