The food presentation at Wit & Wisdom, a Tavern by Michael Mina is simple and elegant, with splashes of creativity here and there. Order the Maine Lobster Pot Pie and you’ll see just what we mean. A server will bring out all of the components of the unique dish, a deconstruction of the traditional pot pie. She’ll then reconstruct the “pie” on your plate, piecing together two lobster claws and a lobster tail in the shape of the crustacean. In the middle, she’ll place a thin, flaky butter crust, shaped into a perfect circle. Then, from a steel pot, she’ll pour the “filling” over top — a lovely mix of pumpkin, celery, onions, herbs and spices. For a bit of fresh contrast, some bright, crisp snap peas are added to your plate, rounding out a delicious dish.
