In 2004, Chef Paul Turano put everything he had, quite literally, into starting his restaurant, Tryst. As he explained to the_Boston Global, "I…leveraged the equity from my condo, lines of credit, and personal loans with interest to fund it." But what started off as a huge risk has turned into a satisfying pay-off as Tryst, an upscale bistro offering contemporary American cuisine, has not only earned a Zagat rating but has also gained praise from _Boston Magazine and TV Diner. But Chef Paul's determination isn’t the only driving focus behind Trysts success. It's also his ambitious culinary philosophy that cuisine should be approachable yet intelligent.

By regularly rotating the menu's entrees, diners are served fresh, seasonal dishes that take a modern approach to comfort food, such as Angus sirloin burgers, pumpkin French toast, and house cured bresola. A lengthy list of wines and specialty cocktails are always on hand to pair with the artfully-plated meals, while seasonal dessert options, such as a pumpkin pie sundae with Bourbon caramel, end meals. And to enhance each diner's experience, modern chandeliers illuminate the 100-seat bistro's dark wood accents and rich chocolate hues.

  • “Keep up the good work!”

  • “2 many tvs all over the place. Found it very distracting. Wish there was a part of the restaurant without tvs.”

  • “did enjoy the evening but wish there was an area set without big screen TV's. I wasn't sure it was a sport bar or restaurant.”
