“★★★ Many dishes involve just a handful of ingredients, making quality key. These straightforward, seemingly artless preparations – yield tantalizing results.”

“How to Cook A Wolf is a handsome wood-slatted den that evokes a Le Corbusier-designed wine barrel.”

“Wolf’s clean execution and tailored Italianate flavors mark familiar Stowell territory, but it’s all packaged with newfound warmth and coziness that’s utterly charming.”
