"TWO HEADED WOLF"
the dualities of our gemini wolf...
i wanted to break away from our normal format, to scale down and separate the two main hearts of big bad wolf. i've been riding a savage wave to the best of my abilities... but something was getting lost in this beast that's bigger than me. so immersed in its beautiful fury that i couldn't see. this is a personal experiment moving into my next transition as a chef, and the continued evolution of bbw.
one concept. two menus. two different experiences, one seating each.
the first menu: "the life you're born with" will feature a family style dinner, all shared plates (a first for bbw).
the second menu: "the life you choose" will be a 7-course, elevated, tasting menu.
these back to back menus signify the complete opposite spectrums of what we do: a sense of our roots, community, openness, chill... vs. an ambitious, decadent, individually plated menu. these dualities have been organically growing, wildly intertwining, while possibly conflicting at the same time. by separating the two, i can figure out the perfect balance, the yin and yang, of how they should exist together moving forward... to pick and choose the best of both worlds. this is my way of stepping back, slowing down, being more present, more focused, less spread thin...
giving myself the space and time to see and feel the bigger picture more clearly.
the synergy and desires of two completely different, complex and dominant traits
but at the core, are essentially the same.
