The new Autumn menu at Wit and Wisdom Tavern is two parts, the casual menu comes with a pencil so you can tick off your choices on the Make Your Own Salad (choose up to 10 items for $13), Signature Salads, Soups & Sandwiches or the Mix & Match (Soup and ½ Sandwich). For a heartier salad choose a protein from hard boiled eggs to seared rockfish.
Personally, I couldn’t resist the new Oyster Po Boy, crispy fried oysters with the Old Bay rémoulade and dill pickle, that and a bowl of their chicken noodle soup to take that edge off the autumn chill. The new cocktail on the lunch menu is the Fig Pimpin 2.0 – Nikka Coffey grain whiskey, yellow chartreuse, maple, Carpano Formula Antica, lemon, house fig jam – shaken (not stirred) in a Collins glass with a fig seemed to be the choice of my lunch companions and a sip of theirs proved their good taste. Since one cocktail can put me out, my beverage of choice was the yuzu mocktail. My two hostesses created their own salads and had the very rich crab bisque. By the way, their bread is to-die-for especially with the honey butter.
