55 S. Market St. Downtown
Bathrooms are a good indicator of the style you’ll find in a restaurant. A grandma vibe, and the food’s probably country and comforting. Cloth instead of paper hand towels? We’re talking classic fine dining. A sink that’s a glass shelf and a urinal with an ingenious design? It’s got to be cutting-edge and modern. And the bathrooms don’t lie at Tristan, where Chef Aaron Deal has been making an impact on the culinary scene since taking over the kitchen last year. Everything about the design of Tristan is fun and modern — kind of like a spaceship from the future landed in the midst of old-timey Charles Towne.
