Happy 15th Anniversary to Tryst – Celebrate Sept. 15th – 30th with Throwback Specials

2459 18th Street, NW

From an email:

“Tryst Coffeehouse, Bar & Lounge, located in Adams Morgan, recognized its 15th anniversary on September 1st. From Sunday, September 15th through Monday, September 30th, Tryst will celebrate its 15 years in Adams Morgan by offering “15 Days of Tryst”.

Tryst is bringing back its 1998 opening house coffee price – $1.50 for an in-house cup for these 15 days. In addition, Tryst will offer guests an assortment of popular throwback dishes and cocktails that have been featured throughout the years including the Danielle Salad, made with fresh mesclun greens, tomato, cucumber, Kalamata olives, and feta cheese drizzled served with a house-made pear vinaigrette and the Mary Sandwich, made with turkey breast, Tryst’s Avocado Spread, tomatoes, lettuce, and white cheddar served on a sourdough baguette. Both menu items, like many others, are named after longtime loyal customers. In addition, Tryst is bringing back one snack offered at opening, Swedish Fish served in a large martini glass.

Throughout the 15 Days of Tryst, guests may participate in an interactive timeline featured on the walls of the restaurant, adding on to photos, old menus, and guests’ stories about their life-changing events that occurred at Tryst.

When owner Constantine Stavropoulos, a Philadelphia native, moved to D.C. he sought to create a place where people go to connect with one another—a third place—away from home and the office. “The Greeks have tavernas, the French have cafes, and the Germans have their beer pubs. It’s…a place that kind of helps define you, the community.” 15 years later, Tryst is still just that to the Adams Morgan neighborhood, to the greater DC community, and even to first time DC visitors. Tryst has become DC’s community gathering place and helped establish DC as the east coast epicenter of specialty coffee. With its “No Corporate Coffee, No Matching Silverware” motto, Tryst welcomes you in to hang out drinking coffee, sipping on craft cocktails, snacking on a wide range of salads, sandwiches and small plates, viewing monthly changing art exhibits, and listening to live music.”
