Sunday brunch and family are synonymous for Jake Wolf.
“Brunch was always a big meal growing up,” he said. “We cooked a huge spread midday and kind of just hung out and did the family thing.”
Wolf recreates that experience each Sunday at Capital Club 16. He owns the popular Raleigh restaurant with his wife, Shannon.
Wolf’s culinary career started in the kitchen of the Pinehurst Country Club, but he fell in love with cooking long before that.
Before moving to the Sandhills, his father owned a restaurant in Connecticut. And his paternal grandmother, well, she can cook.
“She’s the inspiration for all of us to be in the food business,” Wolf said.
