Rustic American BYOB with Historic Roots coming soon to Old City
Philadelphia, PA – Lacroix Sous Chef Benjamin Moore is looking to make the big jump from behind the line to behind the menu at the all new Wister BYOB at 26 N. 3rd street in Old City. Moving from the James Beard Award winning ABC kitchen to famed Philadelphia institution Le Bec Fin Moore has been under the tutelage of some of our country’s greatest chefs including; Dan Kluger, Jon Cichon, Georges Perrier and Nick Elmi.
Chef Moore’s rotating menu will focus on big, bold flavors that highlight the season’s. Price point will be under $30 per entrée with daily specials. “I’m writing the menu around ingredients that are exciting me right now, that happens to be late summer produce, and seasonal fish.” – Chef Benjamin Moore
“The idea behind the menu is to keep it small, but have it changing so often that there’s always something new for our repeat diners.” – Chef Benjamin Moore
The name Wister was pulled from Old City Philadelphia’s Historic Wister building named after master ironworker John Wister. Upon entering the restaurant you will be greeted by exposed brick walls dating back hundreds of years, fine metal work and dimly lit tables.
Wister BYOB is aimed for a soft opening on October 1st. Grand Opening information will be emailed out to everyone that signs up on our site wisterbyob.com. Days of operation will be Tuesday – Saturday, closed Monday. Be on the lookout for Sunday Brunch and Live Jazz one night a week starting in October.
