Yes friends, you (very unfortunately) read that correctly. Wit & Wisdom’s closing for good on NYE, which means you have 30-something days to haul ass and get there. We recently had the pleasure of going for dinner, and their noms were on point as usual. The food and drank is reason enough to go, but then add the ambiance and view? Game over, Nomsters. Whether you’re looking to impress your date or enjoy a fun night out with friends, book a reservation and go because they’ll do your tastebuds good.
We started our meal off with 3 drinks made by Gina Netisingha, Wit & Wisdom’s obscenely talented “cocktail overlord.” FYI. That’s what she calls herself on instagram, and we love it so she is now our forever cocktail overlord. So, here’s what we got: a duck season old fashioned (duck fat & rosemary-washed bourbon, cane, bitters), sage advice (botanical gin, green chartreuse, sage, lemon, egg white), and a lot NO. 27 (bourbon, black walnut, orange, egg white, activated charcoal). All three were exquisite, but our favorite was the sage advice. You honestly can’t go wrong with anything she creates though so just pick the liquor of your choice and let her make magic for you.
You can see a full spread of what we got below! Can we just talk about their presentation for a second though? Straight fire. And let’s be real, these are the prettiest carrots you’ll ever see. Honey roasted heirlooms with toasted pistachios served on cumin yogurt and dill. So much yum in our tum. We also got a tuscan kale salad, and it was honestly the best salad we’ve ever had. It was topped with feta, roasted grapes and toasted hazelnuts and drizzled with this amazing charred onion vinaigrette. The grapes added a subtle sweetness that we loved, and it contrasted beautifully with the creaminess of the cheese.
Here’s a close up shot of their butter poached and broiled NY Strip. It came with grilled asparagus, corn shoots, and pea tendrils, and it was melt-in-your-mouth good – definitely a must if you’re a meat lover!
What meal would be complete without dessert? We’ve had their chocolate bar several times before in the past, but we got it again because it’s THAT good. For those of you wondering, it has salted caramel with hazelnuts and coconut lime ice cream on the side.
Such. A. Beauty.
Then we tried their lemon meringue for the first time. It was topped with seared grapefruit, marcona almonds and was paired with avocado ice cream (!!!!!) We’re not usually big on tart desserts, but this was legit. If you LIKE lemon meringue, this will straight up blow you away. If you don’t, you’ll probably still enjoy it because it’s really well done. So, this is what you should do: go with a bunch of people, order a slew of different things and share because sharing is caring.
Alright guys, that’s a wrap for today. We hope you enjoyed reading all about our latest dining experience at Wit & Wisdom. Remember, they’re closing soon so make a dinner reservation while you can!
