Sparrow + Wolf Restaurant Review

About the restaurant & décor: Classically trained chef Brian Howard (Comme Ça) showcases his international flair at his first-ever restaurant. Located in Las Vegas' Chinatown, Sparrow + Wolf is one of the few non-Asian restaurants in the area and located not far from the Strip. Designed by Howard, décor elements include a walnut bar lit by varied-height pendants, crushed blue velvet upholstered banquettes, charcoal-washed brick walls, a semi-open kitchen with custom-made ovens and a chef’s table separated by brass chains.

Likes: Who says there are no longer dinner shows in Vegas? Order the oak-grilled sea scallops and watch the paper-thin bonito flakes swirl and dance as they react to the heat of the dish.
Dislikes: Décor is somewhat minimal, but the stacks of firewood by the entrance represent the primary cooking styles: robata grill and live fire.

Food & Drinks: Shareable plates combine regional American cuisine anchored by live-fire cooking and global fare. Seasonal items may range from wood-grilled Spanish octopus with butter braised potato and XO sauce to maitake mushrooms over baked Turkish hummus with crispy sunchokes; farm egg with pickled asparagus, caramelized feta and muhammara red pepper dip; and duck breast topped with Hudson Valley foie gras. Drinks include a curated list of hard-to-find craft beers, carefully selected wines and signature cocktails, such as “Jump the Shark” made with Plantation Pineapple Rum, peanut-infused bourbon, banana, lime and mint. Save room for the caramelized honey toast with strawberry, basil and mascarpone ice cream.
