Proprietor, Pickler, and General Manager
Joe Wolf’s love affair with food began at the ripe age of 2 when he helped his great-grandmother make homemade kreplach (soup dumplings) for the Jewish New Year. While attending the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco he picked up an extended stage at Bix Restaurant in Jackson Square, while he helped to open The Creamery in San Francisco’s South Beach neighborhood.
Before MARLA, Wolf worked with Signature Hospitality Group, Foreign Cinema, Michael Mina, Nopa, and most recently, Wise Son Delicatessen, where he held the position of Head Pickler. Wolf was instrumental in helping co-owners, Leo Beckerman and Evan Bloom, launch Wise Sons from a pop-up deli to a brick and mortar restaurant.
