What You'll Get
Eating a hearty meal is a more effective way to fill the void inside than falling in love with a physicist or replacing your missing kidney with Pop Tarts. Take up interior stomach space with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of upscale American fare at Tryg's, located uptown on the edge of Lake Calhoun.
With astounding architecture and a recently revitalized menu, Tryg's offers a dramatic dining experience. At dinner, peppercorn-sprinkled New York strip steaks submerged in a savory cream-and-cognac sea share plate estate with a starchy island of french fries ($29), while Tryg's passionate kitchen professionals swirl juicy pork tenderloin in apple brine ($24.50) to form a mouth-watering whirlpool of sweet and salty tastes. In the capacious dining room, the roaring fireplaces, high ceilings, and ghosts of Shakespearian ghostwriters evoke the grandeur of ages past, and colorful decorative details add a whimsical touch. Stick around after hours to sip selections from the extensive wine list and enjoy live music, DJ sets, and other entertainment, or drop by on weekends for a leisurely, syrup-soaked brunch in the Olympic-size condiment pool.
Gayot enjoys the décor of Tryg's and gives the restaurant an 11. Citysearchers give Tryg's an average of 3.5 stars, TripAdvisors give it three owl eyes, and OpenTable reviewers give it 3.8 stars. Though some older reviews have mixed feelings about Tryg's food, Yelpers agree that the new menu has improved and give the restaurant 2.5 stars.
