Wolf in Sheep's Clothing (Venice) - brief , happy report

cookie monster | Dec 16, 201111:26 AM     5

Had dinner this week at Wolf in Sheep's Clothing, the pop-up restaurant in the Capri space on Abbot Kinney that opened a couple weeks ago, featuring former chefs from Joe's and Axe. No reservations accepted; place seems to fill up by about 7pm and after that they take names on a waitlist. Service was friendly, informative and perhaps a bit too efficient - I like to take my time at meals, and I find that with small plates "we serve it as it's ready" menus the food can come out too fast for me to savor everything. That said, the meal was fantastic overall, and I'm looking forward to going back.

Dishes we loved:

biscuits with pimento cheese and apple butter - baked to order, and so very good
lamb sirloin - a bit small at $21 (the most expensive item on the menu), but delicious
kale salad
hangar steak
collard greens

dishes we loved slightly less but they were still quite good:

sprouting broccoli - good, but nothing thrilling
pork fritter - basically like a deep-fried ball of pulled pork; good concept, but a bit one-note, and maybe it needed more in the way of sauce besides a little pool of hot mustard

Beer and wine list is brief but interesting and reasonably priced.
