For a chef who is TV famous and has worked at such glitzy places as The Bazaar in Beverly Hills, Marcel Vigneron's Wolf is pleasantly down-to-earth. Located on one of the slightly grungier blocks of Melrose Avenue, the space is sophisticated yet simple.  With two large Spanish barn chandeliers and a blue-tiled bar, the decor matches the way Vigneron has described the food — rustic, yet refined. A long booth with bohemian pillows lines one wall, while tables are laid out spaciously throughout the room. It feels like the kind of restaurant where people go, again and again, for the food.  If you’re seated in the right place, you can see Vigneron in the kitchen, focused and holding an immersion blender.
