Chef Ethan Stowell's third well received Seattle venue, "How to Cook a Wolf," on Queen Anne Ave. N. near Boston St. is small and simply fronted by smoked glass windows and a door with small white lettering. The door is usually open when the restaurant is, so you might miss the sign and pass the restaurant. But don't. The reviews are all thumbs way up and the prices reasonable. I've seen lines outside "the Wolf" some days and they don't take reservations, so this is a place to go when you've got time. Here you get a glimpse of the place and some staff members. Click on any of the images for the full shot. I've tried to get some exterior shots on a couple occasions. That's not easy due to parked cars, phone poles, lots of traffic, etc. I had to laugh out loud and called it quits after just a few shots the first time because apparently the young host behind the window could see me snapping away across the street and poked his face into the doorway and briefly flashed me a cheesy grin before disappearing again. I know I'm gonna love this staff. Just steps away are other neighborhood fine dining faves I've shown you before, Opal and Portage, as well as lots of other popular restaurants, cafes, bars, meat, fish, pasta and veggie markets, coffee and tea shops. This former Berkeley-ite wonders if the top of QA is becoming Seattle's own Gourmet Ghetto?
