The reason that chefs Kris Tominaga and Brian Dunsmoor didn't carry the Wolf in Sheep's Clothing name to Palihotel is because they are taking over the shuttered Lilly's space. Yo! Venice! notices fresh exterior signage and spreads word that the restaurant, no longer a pop-up, opens TONIGHT (!) for dinner. Wow, that was a super quick turnaround. More to come.
·Wolf in Sheep's Clothing Settles Down [Yo! Venice!]
Update: According to Yo! Venice, John Mascarenhas and Brad Johnson (BLT Steak, Post & Beam) are partners in this project, and Kevin Kathman (French Laundry, NYC's Daniel) and Dustin Taylor (NYC's Daniel, Waverly Inn) — who both cooked at Capri for a hot minute — will execute the menu. Daniel Nelson (Writer's Room) will run the bar which opens at 4 p.m. daily.
