Owners Michael and Linda Harrison
Michael & Linda are co-owners of True Bistro. For 5 years they have been questioning why there is no upscale vegan restaurant in Boston to rival those in NYC,
San Francisco and Philadelphia. In May 2009, they decided to create that restaurant. The search for the right location led them to Brookline, Cambridge,
Jamaica Plain and finally to a corner in Teele Square, Somerville. They believe vegans in the greater Boston area deserve a restaurant where they feel
good about bringing their veg & non-veg friends and family for a plant based meal.
Michael is the general manager for True Bistro. He was born and raised in Bermuda. Being an avid sports fan, he would plan trips to the US & UK in order to attend baseball and soccer games. In May, 1978, he met Linda while she was on vacation in Bermuda. They married and lived in Bermuda until relocating to Boston with their two dogs in 1990.
Linda is a graduate of Boston Architectural College and specializes in designing healthcare facilities. She grew up in South Florida but her heart belongs to Boston which she considers her adopted hometown. She is Marketing & PR Director for True Bistro. She is most actively involved in the operation of the restaurant on weekends; greeting customers, serving drinks and generally helping out where needed. Michael has been involved in the financial management of restaurants and catering businesses for a large part of his professional life. His dream since moving to Boston was to own and operate a restaurant. That dream merged with Linda’s commitment to veganism and the concept of True Bistro was born.
