New Tryst/Diner Spot Coming to Columbia Heights to be Called “The Coupe”, “soft opening over the next few weeks”

A few weeks ago we got a pre-preview of the new Tryst/Diner concept coming to 11th and Monroe St, NW in Columbia Heights. Now we finally have a name – The Coupe! And they’ll be “soft opening over the next few weeks”.

From a press release:

The creators of Tryst, The Diner and Open City are scheduled to open their latest spot in Columbia Heights over the next few weeks. The Coupe, a hybrid of their first three concepts, will be a community gathering place located at 3415 11th Street on the corner of 11th and Monroe.


The owner, Constantine Stavropoulos has had a strong bond to this neighborhood since he first toured an old abandoned grocery store on 11th Street six years ago. With the recent mix of independent business development, the 11th Street neighborhood was an ideal place to open their fifth location (in May of this year, they opened ‘Tryst at the Phillips’, making The Coupe number five).

Much like what their other concepts did for their respective neighborhoods, The Coupe, located in a 7,000 square foot space, hopes to become that “third place” for the residents of Columbia Heights. Open 24 hours, this coffeehouse, diner, lounge and bar will offer signature Tryst coffees using a variety of brewing methods, homemade pastries and desserts, a restaurant menu that offers a range of comfort food items throughout the day and night with an added mix of entrees and specials at certain times (eggs, waffles and other diner staples will be served all the time), and a bar program with an emphasis on craft cocktails, an eclectic mix of beers, and a lot of wines by the glass, bottle and on tap.
