#33 “Hungry?”

From Allie in Chattanooga, TN

If you are a frequent reader of this blog, you no doubt have anticipated this day for quite some time. Yes, today is the day that an illustration is posted with a long-expected Duran Duran reference. Do I even need to explain the allusion? I should hope not.

I suspect that many of you would would suppose that this entry might include a link to the famous Duran Duran music video for “Hungry Like The Wolf” with some sort of text-to-text connection between the illustration and the music video or that I would perhaps ponder the reputation of the wolf as a being that is primarily known for its voracious appetite. I have, however, chosen to do neither of these things in an effort to maintain a certain level of variety in these postings.

Having said all of this, I will allow you to “feast” your eyes on the list below that contains 6 of the most unique wolf-related restaurants in the continental United States. I will not claim to have eaten at all (or any) of these fine dining establishments, but if a restaurant has the word “wolf” in its name, how bad can it be? In closing, howl at me if you happen to sit down to a meal at one of these locales and give us all an in-depth review.

The White Wolf Restaurant: Napanoch, NY
A posh eatery is about as rare as a white wolf in Napanoch, so this American newcomer is a welcome surprise. Everything is large from the granite-topped zig zag bar to the deluxe dining rooms, one resplendent in mahogany, another in cherry, both with etched glass accents, while eats run the gamut from popular pub grub to prime rib, pastas and chicken saltimbocca.

The Wolf House Restaurant: Glen Ellen, CA
Matching the décor, furniture and feel with the era of Jack London, they redesigned the restaurant’s rustic interior, complementing the brick fireplace and expansive views of the creek with blonde maple floors, honey gold walls, cinnamon maple tables, and chairs finished in rich wheat and burgundy fabric.  Warm, elegant, and comfortable, the location’s breathtaking natural beauty remains the setting’s focal point.  Large picture windows overlook Sonoma Creek, with al fresco dining on two trellis covered decks.
