Because the world is my office, or at least, anywhere with internet, I’m constantly on a search for the perfect place to work from. In this particular case, I got a recommendation for Tryst in DC, when I was there last summer for a few jobs. I loved it! The menu was just what I needed and the vibe too. I love the coffee shop feel – couches, people with computers, etc. – but when I go to these places, I’m often there for hours on end, and will at some point, need a meal that is more than a muffin, biscotti or bagel. Tryst hit the spot. This sandwich was delicious, the atmosphere was great, and I could even people watch a little, because the front opens out onto the street. It’s definitely in my list of places to return to.
With the photo, I wanted to capture more than just the sandwich. I wanted to show something cool – and I liked the big opening out the front.
