Trio Restaurant Restaurant Review

: In the hip Uptown Design District, Trio delivers a mix of traditional and trendy, both in its aesthetics and food. Chef Mark Van Laanen brings touches of New Orleans, Miami and Wisconsin to his menu, with selections such as a Yankee pot roast. Mac ‘n’ cheese doesn't get much cheesier than this. Gouda, cheddar, blue, Romano and goat cheeses make their way into this comfort dish, along with bacon and green onion; it’s topped with tomatoes and bread crumbs. Crawfish potpie is a twist on a classic, using a Creole etouffée sauce. Fried artichoke hearts with caper aïoli; scallops seared rare in a cantaloupe-habanero sauce; and summer succotash are nice hot weather possibilities. Not feeling adventurous? The artisanal cheese plate is a safe bet. The three-course prix-fixe option for $19 is affordable and available daily until 6 p.m.

Went to Trio for Easter brunch...

Went to Trio for Easter brunch with a friend. Wanted to like this place since we heard good feedback for most people. Breakfast was cold and overcooked. I had Eggs Benedict and the eggs were hard boiled and lacking flavor and sauce. Also, the bacon was tough and tasted old, as well as, being overcooked. We might give it one more chance for the fixed price menu, but when you spend $50.00 on Breakfast and it wasn't even good, it is hard to say. I wanted to mention this to the owner, as he was there that morning, but my friend said NO, it wouldn't be right. The restaurant was not crowded, but they forced everyone to eat on top of each other in the front corner by the windows. I guess they do this to look like the restaurant is busy.
