Nightlife Nibbles: Georges Perrier’s Tryst Le Bar Opens With Modern French Eats and Signature Cocktails

Looking for a hip city hangout for evening dining? Philadelphia’s Tryst lounge is now open, conveniently located downstairs from Le Bec-Fin.

With his new Narberth bakery, The Art of Bread, keeping customers well fed and caffeinated, Georges Perrier is hoping his latest project, Tryst Le Bar, will do the same for city dwellers and suburbanites who venture into Philly. Situated just downstairs from Le Bec-Fin, the self-described “nightlife retreat” is a great place to hang out and get not only great drinks but also fantastic food.

The space has been completely redone, making for an updated and stylish atmosphere. The food, prepared by Chef Nicholas Elmi, is modern French, and guests can expect dishes like truffle-and-foie-gras arancini and jumbo lump crab cocktail with caviar. For drinks, be sure to try one of the signature cocktails, such as the Peach Smash (whiskey, lemon juice, fresh muddled peaches, and mint). Or stick to something more familiar from the extensive wine list.

1523 Walnut St., Philadelphia; (215) 567-1000,
