There’s a nightly din­ner party at Spar­row + Wolf, and you’re in­vited.

In the two and a half years since Brian Howard’s depar­ture from Cos­mopoli­tan’s Comme Ca, ru­mors have abounded of his resur­fac­ing in his own venue. And the wait is over with the de­but of Spar­row + Wolf in the heart of Chi­na­town. “Open­ing in Chi­na­town was a no-brainer be­ing such a food des­ti­na­tion. Ob­vi­ously, there’s not a lot of Amer­i­can food, but you’re al­ready gar­ner­ing the at­ten­tion of ev­ery­one by just be­ing there.” Howard sees Spar­row in a “dif­fer­ent niche” sim­i­lar to Chi­na­town new­com­ers Sand Dol­lar Lounge and Golden Tiki. A swath of the menu is cooked over fire in a cus­tom-made grill, harken­ing to his Mid­west­ern roots, but the ver­sa­tile chef is com­fort­able with his sur­round­ings. “I have a big love for Asian food. I have a lot of Asian in­flu­ence around me” rang­ing from his in-laws and from one of his orig­i­nal jobs at The Vene­tian’s Tsunami. But Howard wants more than just a res­tau­rant. “Even more than the food, the goal is to cre­ate a din­ner party every night and bring peo­ple to­gether around a ta­ble. That’s why I do this.” And what more could you ask for from your meal? 4480 Spring Moun­tain Road, 702.790.2147, spar­rowand­wolflv.com –Jim Be­g­ley
