BYOBs

Seafood

Chef Benjamin Moore, the former sous chef at Lacroix, planted his own flag in Old City with this seafood-focused BYOB. The changing, seasonal menu features delicate fusion starters like baby squid with tamarind, peanut, and bok choy alongside heavier larger plates like monkfish and tomatoes with bacon hushpuppies. Lovers of turf fare can expect cameos from Berkshire pork chops and chicken-for-two in lavender jus, while vegetarians will find comfort in the few pasta and vegetable dishes. Wister's dining room is simple American rustic, with exposed pipes and brick walls, green wooden floors, and worn leather banquettes that let the food speak for itself.
