THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Trio's Restaurant Review

: Trios occupies a corner in one of those classy strip centers catering to the up-market retail trade, and its Tuscan-toned interior suggests at least a passing kinship to neighboring shops---despite cramped seating in an architecturally awkward space. There are few pretensions on the simple lunch menu, though; it features omelets, salads, soups, sandwiches and the back-again quiche---all with an edge. The marinated, grilled chicken breast sandwich comes with oven-dried tomatoes and rosemary potatoes for example. So it’s not until evening that the chefs in the mostly open kitchen have a chance to shine with an assortment of American tapas on the order of crab cakes with a red pepper rĂ©moulade and venison pot stickers. Also in the evening, entrĂ©es such as orange tea-cured pork chops and sea bass with a balsamic reduction glaze come accompanied by serious sides that include sweet potatoes with cardamom and orange zest and creamy butternut squash with potato and tomato, as well as guitar music and free wine. A goat cheese and walnut tartlet might make a suitable dinnertime postscript, but at lunch a satisfyingly unassuming peanut butter cookie may be all you really want.
