Two-time James Beard-nominated chef, Evan Funke, will host Cardmembers for a special evening at his new Roman-Italian restaurant, Mother Wolf, in Los Angeles. 

The evening will begin with a private reception of cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, while the Mother Wolf team leads a demonstration on how to make a perfect Roman tonda-style pizza where guests will learn tips and tricks along the way.

Following the reception, Cardmembers will enjoy a four-course seated dinner filled with some of Mother Wolf’s Roman classic menu items accompanied by wine pairings. Chef will share the inspiration behind the menu he specially curated for the evening and highlight some of his favorite dishes. In addition, guests will get a unique opportunity to ask Chef questions about his inspiration, his culinary career and more.

As a memento from this one-of-a-kind event, each guest will receive a curated gift bag featuring Roman specialty items. 

Chef Evan Funke’s latest venture, Mother Wolf, pays tribute to Rome’s mythological origin story of Remus, Romulus and the Lupa Capitolina. Mother Wolf is located in the Citizen News Building on Wilcox Avenue in Hollywood. The restaurant is a sprawling 8,600 square feet, with an open kitchen accounting for just over 3,000 sq ft of that space that is well appointed and designed for speed and accuracy. The dining room seats 150; there are 42 seats in the bar area with 12 additional at the bar; and 8 seats at the pizza bar.

Chef Evan Funke is a steward of Italian cooking traditions and culture. With Rome as the singular focus for Mother Wolf, Funke’s rich and soulful cooking is a mosaic of the ancient, pastoral and urban culinary heritage of la cucina Romana. In partnership with Ten Five Hospitality, Funke looks to create an illustrious dining experience through outstanding hospitality, combined with remarkable gastronomy and a thoughtfully curated Italian wine cellar. The menu at Mother Wolf echoes themes of shepherds, popes, farmers and artisans through wafer-thin wood fired pizzas, hyper-seasonal antipasti and the traditional handmade pastas for which Funke is renowned.
