Review - How To Cook A Wolf

How To Cook A Wolf


How To Cook A Wolf is a great place for a late night dinner, they are open until midnight on Friday and Saturday!  They finally take reservations which is wonderful!  Even before they started accepting reservations, the wait time wasn't too bad. 

One thing that stands out in my mind is the service and friendliness of the staff here! It totally exceeded my expectations!  One of the chefs even greeted us as he prepared someone's dinner.  The hostess was delightful, and everyone made us feel truly welcome into their intimate realm of goodness!

Anytime we see Castelvetrano Olives, we buy them.  I am so glad that most markets carry them now.  They aren't as sour as green olives can be. They are usually sweet and buttery, and the ones served at How To Cook A Wolf, don't disappoint.  At $5, it's kind of steep, but well worth it!

The Hamachi and Yellowtail Crudo $16, is amazing.  Giant slices of Avocado, and a spicy chile sauce.  Even my SO, who abhor's seafood, loved it.  Interesting.  So since then, I have gotten him to try sushi, which he "doesn't mind".  But he still insists that he hates seafood.  I might disagree a little!

The pastas at How To Cook A Wolf are similar to the choices at Tavolata, only they prepare them differently. The Potato Gnocchi, $16, is really outstanding.   The portions are on the small side, and perfect for sharing. Between the two of us, we usually have 4 dishes and dessert.  This place is definitely worth going out of your way to try, I loved it.  It's a little on the pricey side, especially considering the portion sizes. But after you take a bite, you'll see that it's totally worth the splurge!
