The table settings at Wit & Wisdom, a Tavern by Michael Mina are simple yet elegant. Your bare, dark wood table is adorned with a single small candle. In front of you is your white cotton napkin, silverware and a small china salad plate set to the left. If you opt for the house-filtered water as opposed to mineral still or sparkling, your table will also be decorated with a glass milk bottle — your water “pitcher” for the night. Even as your dishes come out, you’ll notice an emphasis on simple serviceware, with white plates serving as bare canvases for rich, flavorful filling foods, ranging from wood-roasted bone marrow to a deconstructed lobster pot pie.
