Yes, the Wolf’s Tailor combines influences from Italy, China and Japan, but if your mind is wandering to fusion cuisine, with its high-voltage mashup of Asian flavors and western European technique, you should know that’s not exactly right. Rather, the Wolf’s Tailor captures chef/owner Kelly Whitaker’s own journey through international kitchens, in addition to his team’s. The kitchen focuses more on what the different cuisines naturally have in common: grilled meats served on skewers, raw-fish preparations, noodles. A charcoal binchotan grill forms the basis of much of the cooking, and Whitaker has brought his obsession with heritage grain to bear through both a bread oven and extruded noodles made with house-milled flours. The result is something altogether new, but grounded in flavors and textures familiar and delicious.
