The Venice pop-up once known as Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing has found a home inside the Palihotel. Though permanent—and decked out in a Wes Anderson-esque animal motif—the bright tiled space feels at odds with the joint’s soulful Southern cuisine. Scruffy chef-owners Kris Tominaga and Brian Dunsmoor pull out every tasty trick in the Dixie cookbook to make sure you don’t care: black-eyed peas with ham hocks, fried green tomatoes with buttermilk dressing, chicken cracklins to dip in spicy vinegar. It more than works. With a West Coast farm-to-table focus, their food of the South becomes something else entirely. » 7950 Melrose Ave., 323-424-3055 or
