How to Cook a Wolf

Whenever J and I have an event like a birthday, anniversary, promotion etc... we go to restaurants that we haven't yet tried. Not that we don't already do that pretty regularly but we try to keep a list of restaurants that we want to try and make it a point to go to one of them for the special occasion. We are lucky to live in a city that has so many amazing restaurants and living in the city, everything is less than 10 minutes away!

We have been wanting to try How to Cook a Wolf for the longest time as we have heard such great things about the food. However, they do not take reservations and it is pretty hard to get in. Luckily, we are pretty late eaters so we waited until about 8pm and thought our chances would be pretty good to get in. We actually still had to wait about 15-20 minutes before getting seated but we didn't mind at all.

Anyways, I'll just let the pictures tell the rest of the story...

How to Cook a Wolf is a shared plates kind of place so we ordered 4 dishes (and I don't remember the correct names of them all as they have a constantly rotating menu) but we had the Prosciutto di Parma (1st Picture), Escolar, Pork Belly (2nd picture) and a pasta. If you are super hungry when you go there order 4 dishes, otherwise I think 3 dishes is enough for 2 people.

  3. How to Cook A Wolf was delicious. We sat at a bar which was so cool since we saw all the food coming out the kitchen. I wanted to order everything! I also want to try Anchovies and Olives, his other restaurant.

  4. This is on my list of places to try, and this post just cements this Must-Do. Have heard nothing but good things and thanks for the tip about going later. Unfortunately don't live in the city, so it's tougher for us to get out regularly, but agreed, so many options and it's nice to be able to savor the experience.

  7. I have to say, I'm rather jealous that you guys feel comfortable taking pictures of everything.... I still feel weird when I have my camera out to take "ordinary" pictures. (Maybe because I'm no awesome photographer? Then again, the only way to get better is to practice! It's such a weird cycle to be in...)
