The Wolf Heads West

Wolfgang Zwiener seems to have this whole steakhouse thing figured out.

1. Serve as head waiter at New York City's dominant steakhouse for decades.
2. Partner up with your sons and a few coworkers to open your own joint.
3. Get a killer review.
4. Open multiple locations.

Mission accomplished. But that doesn't mean the Wolfgang's crew is going to rest on its laurels. Two locations? Not enough. Manhattan? Can't contain them. So what's the next step? LaLa land baby. DBTH has learned that Wolfgang's is bringing its show to the West coast, with plans to open a third location on Canon Drive, smack dab in the middle of the Hills. Beverly that is. Ohhhhh! Target opening is late 2008, and the folks at the Palm, Mastros and Wolfgang Puck should take note. The dry aged porterhouse for two doesn't play around.
