Linda and Michael created True Bistro because they believed vegans in the greater Boston area deserved a restaurant where they could feel good about bringing their veg & non-veg friends and family for a plant-based meal. They also wanted to encourage people to eat a plant-based diet by showcasing interesting and delicious food.
Michael is General Manager of True Bistro. He was born & raised in Bermuda. He met Linda while she was vacationing in Bermuda. They married and lived in Bermuda until relocating to Boston in 1990. He has been involved in the financial management of restaurants and catering businesses for a large part of his professional life.
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 works mostly behind the scenes at True. One of her primary roles is selecting the artists that will be displayed.
Michael’s dream after 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.
