Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing
Like its pop-up predecessor, this Abbot Kinney restaurant prepares Southern food with a California bent. Dousing creamed corn with truffle oil is a bad idea. Frying up pork into fritters that are served with a vinegary salad is a great one. Wine list à la Ralphs? Not so good. Wrangling veteran restaurateur Brad Johnson to help run the place? That’s more like it. And while we frown on the toffee-chocolate-banana-bacon bread pudding, the quail legs atop creamy grits has us all smiles. » 1031 Abbot Kinney Blvd., 310-392-2425, wolfinsheepsclothingrestaurant.com.
