Waystone fills a culinary niche in Mid-Market, where workers and shoppers are often forced to grab bites at the mall or other tourist-oriented venues nearby. Situated in the Warfield building, the wine bar offers a simple, limited menu of hearty seasonal fare like the Ploughman’s Lunch, made up of assorted pickled veggies and cheeses, a hardboiled egg, house mustard, chimichurri, and toasts with the option to add sliced sausage and house cured salmon. Pair it with any of the menu’s salads, sandwiches, soups, and desserts, and wash it down with a California or European wine from the list programmed by Causwells legend Tom Patella. Waystone is a welcome destination for those on the nine-to-five grind; the décor has modern, natural elements, like pale wooden countertops, that make it warm and cozy, complementing the Warfield’s brick walls and concrete floors.
