Moving with the times, Puck has recently introduced his latest endeavor, i.e., an app that includes recipes, links to Puck's restaurants as well as help with party planning. What's more, he has been constantly active in philanthropic endeavors and charitable organizations, co-founding the Puck-Lazaroff Charitable Foundation in 1982.
