Editorial Review of Tryst



Small plates abound at Tryst.

On a stretch of Clark Street known for its sports bars, Tryst infuses a little bit of sophistication into an otherwise beer-soaked neighborhood. Throw away your Bud Light bottle and grab a specialty martini at this classy Wrigleyville lounge. Contemporary decor gives Tryst a cool, modern vibe that goes perfectly with a chilled cocktail and the dressed-to-impress crowd.

Forget about hotdogs; Tryst's menu boasts gourmet small plates like chicken satay and ahi tuna. The closest you'll get to burgers is the trio of sliders, but you can take your pick of mini-sandwiches: crab cake, herb-rubbed chicken or steak with Merlot mushroom sauce, among other options.

With small plate prices approaching $10, you might want to check out Tryst's daily food and drink specials. Live acoustic music on Wednesday nights provides relaxing midweek entertainment, and local DJs spinning on Friday and Saturday nights set your weekend in motion.

Despite the fancy lounge feel, Tryst can be a more grown-up, post-game option for a slightly better dressed Cubs crowd. Just make sure you leave your beer helmet at home.

Average cost: <$10
