I wanted to like Tryg’s, I really did. The interior is beautiful with the high ceilings and dark colors. The staff is young and fresh and actually provide great service. I love the bar side especially now since they’ve brought back jazz on Sunday mornings. There is also seating and a fire pit on their patio. Overall, the place has the look, but the food leaves something to be desired.
I will say that they do have decent happy hour and some good specialty drinks. Also, my boyfriend loves the crab cakes benedict. I will admit that they are pretty tasty. However, my last couple breakfast choices at Tryg’s have been very bland and expensive for what I got. The chicken florentine was very beige and watery, something you don’t want your eggs to be. It was very underseasoned and had really no taste at all. I even tried sriracha sauce on it to spice it up (I put that on everything), but it didn’t help. The popovers (which I was very excited about) were even a disappointment. They were dry and hard, not buttery and eggy or fresh.
On another visit for happy hour a large group of us decided to try some appetizers. The appetizers were decent, but came only 2 to a plate and the portions were really small. For what you got the prices were way too high. It would have also been helpful to know that ordering just 3 or so wouldn’t feed our table of 7, but we were not warned.
It’s too bad that I haven’t had a good food experience at Tryg’s yet. They have a great location and many other good things going for them, but their food quality makes a lot of that other stuff obsolete. I’ve never had dinner there, so maybe that’s better? Can anyone tell me? Until then I probably won’t be back to Tryg’s, at least for breakfast.
