Foodies, date night-seekers, seafood lovers and East Dallas residents alike, Cry Wolf is a gem, with some darn good food! And it’s now open as of December, sitting right on Gaston Ave., for dinner daily, except for Mondays.
Cry Wolf is the creation of chef Ross Demers, who’s previous work includes On The Lamb, Beverley’s and Flora Street Cafe. The restaurant has a laidback atmosphere, but the food is incredible, and joins a growing Old East Dallas group of casual but foodie spots like Petra and the Beast, Garden Cafe and Khao Noodle Shop.
The menu changes often so you won’t find one online yet, it features inventive dishes like a *beet* tartare (divine), a 48 hour crispy wagyu tongue or grilled razor clams to start. There’s a handful of mains split between fish, meat and pastas. We had the Rock Shrimp Parpadelle and Squid Ink Spaghetti, both of which were mouthwatering.
And if you notice a seafood theme, they actually have seafood flown in from the west and east coasts daily, that they hand select from their contacts.
The food is the star of the show, but paid your dishes with a glass of wine, or one of the two cocktails of the day that are off menu. We had a variation of a margarita and a rose martini.
For pricing, appetizers range from $13-21 and entrees, $26-$49. For reservations, you can make them and we would recommend for the weekend. We stopped in on a Thursday and had no problem getting a table…but that might not be the case after this post.
We loved the experience and can’t recommend the restaurant more! We’re already planning our next visit back when craving food that could rival restaurants in NYC!
