Restaurants on Atlantic Avenue
Since I enjoyed the
Grand Opening at Tryst Restaurant
so much in January, it only made sense that I go back to this Delray restaurant for dinner!
So the following weekend I made plans to meet up with my new friend Linda (who I had just met at the Grand Opening of Tryst Restaurant the previous weekend), and her friend, Louise.
Even though we didn’t make reservations, reservations are highly recommended for those of you who don’t want to wait.

We had a 45 minute wait but we didn't mind because we wanted to take our leisurely time and enjoy the new Tryst Restaurant so we made good use of our time...at the bar!
When they took our names at the door, we were given the choice of patio dining in their beautiful courtyard or indoor dining.
When I peaked outside to see their patio dining, it did look enticingly romantic! Maybe if I were on a date, but not tonight. Tonight, I wanted to mingle!
While we were waiting for our table, we sat at Tryst's fabulous bar, enjoying our cocktails, and after two cocktails…
Hey, who cares where you sit!
So, the bar soon turned into our dinner table.

It wasn't the best for three people trying to have a conversation but that was by our own choice, nothing to do with Tryst.
However, I will say the entire restaurant was so busy (that’s a good thing), and so loud, I’m not so sure a table would have served us any better.
And besides, I was out to mingle and meet people and I’ve always found sitting at the bar is best for that.
Linda had the “six pack of fresh shucked cold water oysters”.
She was told they came with bread but then later we were told they were out of bread.
Yikes for the restaurant, and too bad for Linda, but I suppose this means they had a busy dinner, so great for Tryst, right?!
Linda couldn’t understand how she was suppose to soak up the tasty, yummy buttery sauce.
After some persistence, our server provided some pita bread that seemed to appear from nowhere.
We never did know the secret behind where it came from but it made Linda happy and that's what mattered!
Louise had the “baby greens salad in house vinaigrette.” As you can see from the photo it was very colorful.
I ordered “fresh garlic shrimp on blistered tomato and spinach risotto,” a special off their special board.
I'm a picky eater because I try to avoid gluten-filled foods, so this was the perfect dish for me! And I love risotto and I love shrimp.
It was deliciously yummy!
Albeit they were out of bread, you must remember this was the first weekend after
Tryst Restaurant Grand Opening.
I think they deserve mega kudo's for packing in a full house for their first weekend!
Both the food and service have been A+ both times I've been to Tryst Restaurant.
Tryst Restaurant in Delray, the food is so good, I'm convinced they're sprinkling pixie dust on it, because I crave it again the next day.
We tried the Blue Point oysters with caviar, which were very fresh and delicious. I had the daily special fish, a Wahoo steak served over red cabbage with jicama slaw and a spicy mustard sauce. Delicious! My wife had the fish tacos, which she also loved.
Tryst Restaurant in Delray is a great place to take friends for a night out on the town. Not the romantic, stuffy kind of place, but more of a fun, upscale neighborhood pub on Atlantic Avenue. Beautiful courtyard outside with a banyan tree in the center and rustic, cozy interior.
Besides the food, the beer selection is really unbelievable with lots of craft beer on tap and in the bottle.
Tryst Restaurant has an amazing 58 craft beers to choose from!
