Welcome to Play Food & Wine
Play is the creation of Stephen Beckta
of the renowned Beckta dining & wine
Our hope is to offer you extraordinary food & wine with fun, value and the same warm hospitality that we have become known for.

Our menu focuses on constantly changing small plates and large selection of wines by-the-glass.

We hope to be able to introduce
more Play to your dining life soon!

Stephen Beckta talks about his vision for Play.

Group Dining
Play food & wine offers seating for parties of up to 26 people on our second floor for either lunch or dinner. Our large tables can accommodate eight, ten and eight guests respectively to celebrate many types of events. This is an intimate, but non-private area located at the far end of our larger second floor dining room with beautiful windows overlooking the corner of York Street and Sussex Drive as well as a wonderful view of the Parliament buildings. We offer our full A-la-carte menu for groups of this size, although pre-fix menus are available, if required, to suit your party's needs. Please note that a 19% gratuity charge will be added to all guest checks of 8 or more people. A credit card is required to place reservations of groups of 10 or more.
