Re: “The Grand Bohemian is open for business

What a great addition to our city. What care the Kessler family took to make this hotel not only fit into that corner, but to preserve the two oak trees on Meeting Street. Once again, another great hotel added to our city and greatly because of our epic CVB and Mayor. Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Kessler. This is a wonderful partnership.

Re: “Tristan

I have to agree with you Jeff. Something is amiss in these other reviews.

Before they closed for lunch, I often took clients to Tristan and on a frequent basis. We were always WOWed. For dinner, the room changes into a festive environment with elegant service and food to match. We all have our favorite stand by dishes around town and Tristan seems to always balance the menu with those and progressive, thought provoking items as well.

To call it "South Beach" is not fare, though the modern feeling of the environment and cuisine does suggest it.

The James Beard pre-dinner was compared by many of my friends and foodies in the industry as something that we would have enjoyed at the likes of Charlie Trotter's AUREOLE in Manhattan or TRU in Chicago. Chef Deal's innovative presentation and understanding of texture has set his dining experience apart from his culinary colleages in town; a good thing.

I was able to see Chef Deal's work at the Food + Wine Festival as well on Thursday night. Stellar job !

As with ALL Restaurant experiences, if these disgruntled reviewers really feel this way about Tristan, they owe it to themselves to give it another go. After all, isn't that we all do? Everyone has a bad night - even the best of the best.
