Beginning Monday, December 1st, 2014 Chef Paul Turano of Tryst Restaurant in Arlington, MA will begin "Pizza Mondays."
Turano makes no qualms about creating the promotion to drive traffic to an off night at his restaurant. "We're not that busy on Mondays and we like taking everyday food and elevating it. We do flatbreads at my other restaurant Cook in Newton, but that's a different profile. We wanted to make really good bar pizzas. The kind you'd find at a great roadside spot in New England." Happy with the outcome, Turano and his team at Tryst will be offering up (2) personal bar pies with one topping each and a pitcher of draft beer for $20.00 (tax and gratuity not included) every Monday night from 5:00PM - 10:00PM. For toppings guests can choose from items like: pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, onions, peppers and more. Additional toppings are $1 each.
Turano has done similar lighthearted food specials in the past including his "Arlington Fried Chicken" which had Turano running out of chicken before opening each night with call in pre-orders, and his "T's BBQ" in which he turned Tryst into a BBQ restaurant for a week.
"It took us a while to decide to do pizza. There are a lot of great places around Boston that do such a good job, but we thought focusing on bar pies might be a fun thing to play with and hopefully we hit on a good price that will get people interested in coming out early in the week," said Turano.
