How To Cook A Wolf.

Ethan Stowell has several restaurants in Seattle. We dined at 4 of them. The first one we went to was How To Cook A Wolf. Parking is pretty tough in the area (Queen Anne Ave N) so SP dropped me off in a grocery store lot, went and found street parking, then walked to get me and walk the block to the restaurant. We had made reservations and were seated right away.
There is a lot of wood inside. Floors, walls, ceiling. The ceiling-wall is curved, making me feel like we were inside a wood barrel. I ordered an Italian white wine. SP stuck with water. There are small plates and larger plates and it's great for sharing.
We started with Heirloom Tomato Salad (eggplant cucumber, caciocavallo, crouton). Delicious. I wish tomato season would never end. The eggplant was a puree in the bottom of the bowl. I loved the lacy, thin croutons and the cheese plus the delicious, fresh veggies.
We did not share Hamachi Crudo (melon, black pepper, lime, puffed wild rice). This was for SP and he said it was terrific. Like his meal/drink at Radiator Whiskey, this was a dish he talked about a lot during vacation.
SP also had, all for himself, Grilled Squid (lentils, preserved lemon, fennel, pickled peppers). He enjoyed this a lot as well. 
Meanwhile I was devouring Pappardelle (Lamb Sugo, Tomato, Eggplant, Herb Ricotta, Olive). Delicious pasta. Lamb. Lots of eggplant. Cheese. A perfect dish for my tastes. I think it is my favorite dish from vacation. SP liked it, too.
We couldn't agree on dessert so we ordered two. SP chose Lemon Olive Oil Cake (port figs, bay leaf cream, parmesan tuile). He thought it was wonderful, I thought it was OK. it's not really my kind of dessert, but it very much an SP kind of dessert.
I chose Cannoli (pistachio ricotta, powdered sugar). I picked off the pistachio because I'm not a fan. The cannoli were delicious. Crispy, lots of creamy filling. I ended up taking one back to the hotel to enjoy later in the week.

We both really liked HTCAW. There were plenty of choices for each of us. Service was great, too. I'd definitely go back the next time we're in Seattle.
