Chandler, Ariz.—March 12, 2019—Today, Tryst Cafe, an award-winning Desert Ridge restaurant where diners have had an affair with naturally delicious food since 2010, opens a second location in Chandler. Located at 4205 S. Gilbert Road in the The Plant plaza, the new Cafe expands the brand.
“We are excited to bring our affair with naturally delicious food to Chandler,” Co-Owner Lisa Khnanisho says. “The new location brings everything Tryst Cafe is about to the next-level.”
The two-day grand opening celebration beings with a ribbon cutting ceremony with the Chandler Chamber of Commerce today at 4p. City of Chandler officials including Mayor Kevin Hartke are scheduled to be in attendance to celebrate. The growing city and the newly constructed mall was selected for its alignment with the Tryst Cafe brand.
“Chandler is a vibrant, growing city of families and professionals and we are in love with this area,” Khnanisho adds.
The newly-built 3,500 square-foot location includes an oversized 1,300 square-foot outdoor patio, a semi-circular indoor/outdoor full-service bar with stunning views of the Red Mountains, a private dining and meeting space that seats 14, and a bright and airy main dining area.
A full-service, walk-in coffee and smoothie bar offer diners on-the-go caffeine or fruit and vegetable quick-fixes. Both are among the first in the Valley to infuse CBD into beverages upon request.
The main menu features an extensive organic beverage menu of botanicals, kombucha, natural energy drinks, teas, wine, tequila, rum, scotch, and more.
More than ten new items were added to Tryst Cafe’s already comprehensive breakfast, lunch, happy hour, dinner, beverage, spirits, and dessert menu. Signature dishes include the Strawberry Custard, Pecan Crusted, and Traditional French Toasts ($11.29), Monte Cristo ($11.99), Crispy Quinoa Avocado ($6.99), Bison Burger ($16), Naturally Raised Buffalo Chicken Wrap/Sandwich ($11.99), Pork Adobo Tacos ($11.50), and Steak Salad ($15).
Long-acknowledged by the vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free community for its groundbreaking, extensive menu, Tryst Cafe extends this tradition with items such as its Banana Quinoa Pancakes ($11.29), Avocado Toast ($9.79), Hawaiian 2-Organic Egg Breakfast (12.79), Harvest Buddha Bowl ($12), Portobello Sandwich ($11), and Roasted Curry Cauliflower ($15), Kale Wrap ($12), and Falafel Appetizer (($6.79), Breakfast ($11.59), or Salad ($11.29).
“Our menu is natural, healthy, and clean with something for everyone from the vegan diner to the meat-and-potatoes lover,” Khnanisho explains. “We believe everyone can have an affair with naturally delicious food.”
On day two of the celebration, Tryst Cafe will host an Organic Wine Taste & Vote event from 5 to 7 p.m on March 13 at the Chandler location (and on March 20 at the Phoenix location). For $10, participants 21 and older can taste five prospective organic wines and vote for one to be placed on the Cafe’s next month’s menu. Event-goers will also taste popular appetizers from the menu and a free dessert if they stay for dinner at Tryst Cafe. Seating is first-come-first-serve.
