My SO and I went to Cafe Trio last night for the first time and were very impressed. We both ordered specials - they are doing a Tour de France inspired menu so the specials were French inspired. The house salad that came with my meal was wonderful - nut encrusted chevre on mixed greens with pistachios and a citrus vinaigrette. SO just wanted mixed greens and was cheerfully accomodated.
My entree was a grilled whole sea bass stuffed with lemon slices and rosemary. It was beautifully presented with a lemony sauce and yellow tomatoes. Delicious. SO's entree was grilled duck breast with a cherry sauce. The breast was a perfectly cooked medium rare. Both entrees were accompanied by artichoke hearts and haricots vertes.
We sat in the lounge so we had great people-watching of a bachelorette party next to us, the very animinated and hot crowd on their patio and the pedestrian traffic on the plaza. Very friendly and fun server. We will go back soon to try their regular menu.
