Wolf & Lamb has been a family favourite since it first opened 20 years ago. Its recent move six doors down enabled a complete refit and an updated feel bringing them in line with other leading family restaurants in midtown Manhattan.
Our waiter, Jimmy welcomed us back warmly.
We went with his recommendation for chicken schnitzel and onion rings as a starter. Now I always forget Americans never do anything small. So while the schnitzel was moist with the prefect seasoning the portion size was just too big, but Jimmy was kind to pack it away so we could enjoy it later in the day. The onions ring crispy and fresh and came with a great fresh mint garlic mayo.
However the reason to come to Wolf & Lamb is the steaks. Following Jimmy’s recommendation we went for the black Angus cowboy rib steak bone-in and filet mignon medium rare with the sweet potato fries and mash. The steaks where both just melt in the mouth amazing. If you like steak – Wolf & Lamb is a must. The sweet potatoes were ok but I would defiantly give the mash a miss, not something I would order again. There is a reason I have been coming to wolf and lamb for the last 20 years, their consistent quality which didn’t disappoint again.
NB – please remember on Jewish holidays the restaurant is closed so do check in advance.
