Meeting friends for brunch on my birthday!
We decided to venture east to Wolf, a casual new place by my fried, Chef Marcel Vigneron (check out a meal he cooked at our house here). Off the bat it gets cool points for the uni-wolf.
Inside is casual and funky. They share a kitchen with Beefsteak his adjoining vegetarian restaurant.
Bloody Mary. It had some other name and was very smoked.
Turmeric Latte. Turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, honey, almond milk. Tasted great. Very earthy. No caffeine though.
Matcha Latte. Matcha, spirulina, maca, vanilla, coconut oil, almond milk. Very creamy and nutty. The almond milk offset the bitter matcha qualities nicely.
Hibiscus Latte. Hibiscus, almond milk. Not as popular with those that tried it.
The fat stack. Pancakes (minus the strawberry/rhubarb sauce).
Chicken and waffle. Buttermilk, maple whip, hot sauce. This was a great chicken and waffle. The combo of sweet, salty and hot was perfect. Nice fried chicken, very sweet maple whip, and a good bit of heat from the chili oil like sauce.
Waffle. Maple syrup, berries, whipped cream, powdered sugar.
Herb omelet. Mushrooms, goat cheese, side salad. The omelet eater didn’t love this dish.
Eggs Benedict. Hollandaise, coddled egg, spinach, smoked pork.
$10k Burger. avocado, sunnyside egg, muenster, watercress, potato roll. Most of the stuff was on the side here by request.
Crispy Potatoes. Aji amarillo aioli, lime, cilantro, serrano. Very crispy with a nice soft center. I really liked the potato texture. It came off like an excellent potatoes bravos.
This is just brunch of course, but overall the food at Wolf seemed both interesting, hip, and for the most part on point. I’ll have to try it for dinner.
Service was fabulous. Our waiter really knew what he was doing and handled our giant picky table with ease.
