Seattle: How to Cook a Wolf

37 of 51

How to Cook a Wolf, brought to you by another lovable young couple act, is a hyper-curated Italian wine bar that’s part of the mini restaurant empire of gifted chef Ethan Stowell. In a handsome wood-slatted den that evokes a Le Corbusier–designed wine barrel, Stowell composes understated antipasti, sauces fluffy gnochetti with local wild mushrooms, and sets a few pink slices of venison on a silken smear of sunchoke purée. The compelling Italian wine list by his wife, Angela, runs to such gems as a Sicilian red called COS Pithos—unoaked, unsulfured, and fermented in terra-cotta amphorae. Dinner for two $65.
