Wolfgang Puck, is that you? Your guests will swear it is if the canapé and crudité at your next party come from this custom-fabricated kitchen. But don’t stop there: Let’s take this outside. Mingle around one of seven fire features while perfectly engineered sound conveys the jangle of jazz piano right to your ear.
