Dear Chef Sai;
My husband and I recently dined at DeWolf Tavern, enjoying the Tandoor Roasted Chicken and Lobster.  Will you explain what a Tandoor Oven is?
Many Thanks!
Newport, RI

Dear Tori;
The Tandoor oven is cylindrical and heated with charwood (not briquettes).  It reaches temperatures up to 900 degrees - immediately searing the food exterior and maintaining the natural juices which enhance all flavors.  This method of Tandoor is so popular that we are on our second oven!

Hi Chef;
We have vegetarian family members visiting - will they have ample choices?

Hi Lesley & Tom;

I grew up in a vegetarian home, and my mother still is!

Therefore, I have a great love of and experience with vegetarian appetizers, entrees, and desserts.  Some of our most popular include Brussel Sprout Cornbread Hash, our housemade Sweet Potato Gnocchi with a choice of sides, as well as "Design Your Own Entree" combining any three sides and Naan Bread.  A complete list is under our Menu icon.

In addition, we can provide Vegan Selections as well as Gluten Free.  Please ask your server for assistance. 

We have been big fans of DeWolf Tavern since you opened in 2004.  Several people have commented that the DeWolf Tavern serves Indian food.  How do you describe your cuisine?

A good question!  We are foremost a Contemporary American Cuisine Restaurant.  In fact, Boston Magazine's Conde Nast Traveler awarded us "Best New American Cuisine in New England" in 2007.  I enjoy combining my diverse food experiences and training with a variety of flavors and techniques, using the freshest seasonal  ingredients I can find.  Don't hesitate to ask your server about flavors or intensity.

Hope to see you soon!

Do you ever offer cooking classes?

Does the DeWolf ever do private parties?  We are thinking of a rehearsal dinner.
"Just Engaged"

Certainly - we regularly customize private events.  Please review some sample event menu selections under Your Special Event.  We regularly use the Bristol Harbor Room for private functions.  We also have the superb waterfront deck which is tented seasonally.  Keep us in mind for private events of 2 through 200!!!
