Lisa Vanderpump, TV star and restaurateur, recently opened her newest restaurant, Wolf by Vanderpump at Harveys Lake Tahoe, in partnership with Caesars Entertainment. To commemorate the occasion, Vanderpump hosted a star-studded opening and surprised guests with an extravagant “white carpet” arrival with her dog, Marky.

“We are so excited to open Wolf in stunning Lake Tahoe,” said Vanderpump. “Wolf is visually so different from any of my other restaurants and has become a passion project for both me and my design partner, Nick Alain. We are delighted to take elements from the incredibly beautiful locale and incorporate them into the aesthetic – it’s bold, playful and luxurious – everything a wolf is and more. We can’t wait for guests to get the full Wolf experience.”

Wolf was designed by Vanderpump and long-time design partner Alain. The restaurant immerses guests in the beauty of Lake Tahoe. All the bold furniture and light fixtures are custom-made by Vanderpump Alain, Vanderpump and Alain’s design line. The 47-foot marble top bar, the longest bar in Lake Tahoe, is decorated with bespoke brass lamps and two oversized white marble wolves coming out of iron cages in the center.

Vanderpump and her daughter, mixologist Pandora Vanderpump Sabo, created the cocktail menu, which features never-before-seen drinks only available at Wolf. Unique cocktails include the signature Sheep’s Clothing, a jalapeño vodka and strawberry martini with notes of lime and jalapeño honey and a fluff if cotton candy featuring 18-karat edible gold flakes on top; The Huff & Puff, a blood orange old-fashioned served in a unique wolf decanter with a touch of smoke; and Bitch in Heat, a cactus ancho chili margarita served with char-grilled shishito peppers.

The dinner menu offers classic dishes with a playful twist. Begin with a delicious appetizer like the Wolf signature bread stuffed with pull-apart herb and cheese; hickory-smoked, cornflake-crusted bourbon chicken wings; and lobster crisps. Main dishes include Ken’s Guinness fish n’ chips, Wolf’s signature double smash burger, and a bone-in New York strip with smashed potatoes and blue cheese cream.
