Chef Brian Howard’s Sparrow + Wolf | Modern American Cuisine in Vegas’s Chinatown

Las Vegas, NV– There are a handful of restaurants that I enjoy going back to in Las Vegas, for their inventive seasonal menus and extraordinary service. Sparrow + Wolf is on that list. The first time I dined here was soon after they first opened in the summer of 2017, and we were seated in their private dining room. That same night, my friends and I had the pleasure of viewing their open kitchen, meeting Chef Brian Howard, and taking a group picture.

My friends, myself and Chef Brian Howard – Back in 2017

WE ARE ALL ABOUT BALANCING THE OLD WITH THE NEW, COOKING IN SYNERGY WITH THE SEASONS AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, GETTING BACK TO GENUINE NEIGHBORHOOD HOSPITALITY. WE HAVE A LOVE FOR COOKING OVER A LIVE FIRE, CRAFTING GREAT COCKTAILS, SOURCING THE BEST AND MOST EXCITING INGREDIENTS WE CAN FIND AND THROWING AMAZING DINNER PARTIES… 

– Chef Brian Howard, Sparrow + Wolf website

Over five years have past, and their evolution of American cuisine keeps bringing enticing modern dishes, cooked in old world ways. Sparrow + Wolf has a kitchen hearth that stays warm after it is turned off when the restaurant closes. Overnight, many vegetables and dishes are slow roasted on that warm hearth for the next day. It is the fine fusion of both worlds, old and modern.

Their menu does change seasonally and frequently, which my friends and I find exciting. It gives us a chance to return to Sparrow + Wolf, and try a new featured dish. Their food menu offers several signature dishes, as well as rotating seasonal creations, and an extraordinary list of libations.

Sparrow + Wolf is located in the heart of Chinatown off of Spring Mountain Road. A part of Las Vegas that for decades was predominantly Asian eateries, but has seen an exciting shake up with upscale modern restaurants, such as Sparrow + Wolf.
