Tryst is worth a trip just to see the restaurant, which is a trendy new addition to Beach Drive in downtown St Pete. Outside, they have some cozy couches on the sidewalk, but we usually like to sit inside with the cool vibe going on in there. We have stopped by many evenings just to have a glass of wine and relax. Most recently, we tried the Sweet Corn Chowder topped with warm crab salad, which is absolutely delicious. Another winner is the Roasted Duck Breast with its delightful maple glaze that adds just the right touch of sweetness and is nicely complemented with sauteed spinach and wild rice. We also enjoyed the Filet Mignon Brochettes. To finish it all off was the fabulous peach cobbler cheesecake. In conclusion, great food, good setting, but sometimes the service can be hit and miss, depending who your server is. The only other comment I might make is the price point is probably fine for tourists who are vacationing on the spot and tend to congregate on Beach Drive, but a bit high compared to other restaurants in the area. That being said, I still love it.
