Wister BYOB earned an enthusiastic “Two Bells: Very Good” review from The Philadelphia Inquirer’s Craig LaBan, who wrote that the cuisine has a distinctive perspective, dabbling in exotic flavors, with excellent ingredients put into unusual combinations turned with some contemporary techniques.” He was equally positive about the friendly service: the staff is “friendly…which matters,” and he concluded that “mastering the art of the whole chicken can be the restaurant equivalent of serving its patrons the ultimate comfort fit,” cleverly interpreting businessman owner Joseph Scorsone’s experience as a shoe salesman into his current success operating a restaurant gem in Philadelphia’s historic Old City neighborhood.
