I really have lucked out with the restaurants I reviewed this month. So far - some of the best food in Utah!
Cafe Trio invited my husband and me to try out their restaurant. I was super impressed. The environment was warm yet modern. I was impressed with the knowledge of the servers and the perfect timing of the food. And the food! Everything we ate - we devoured, or wish we could! So delicious. Here's a look at the food we ate.
Creamy Tomato Soup - delicious, tastes so fresh yet so warm. My husbands favorite thing of the night.
Rosemary Flat Bread - with warm goat cheese, sundried tomatoes, roasted peppers, and caramelized onions. I think this was meant for me - this has all of my favorite ingredients. My husband wanted to lick the bowl (Don't worry, I stopped him, it is too nice of a place to put a bowl up to your face)
Mixed Green Salad - all the ingredients were such a compliment to the other. I was surprised at how much I liked the red grapes in the salad. Fit perfectly.
Baked Penne - a favorite for Trio diners. The chicken was perfectly cooked. I loved trying it. I would never get to make this exact dish at home because my husband won't eat mushrooms. Was a classic dish. Still thinking of the prosciutto in it.
Shrimp Risotto - this was a special for the night, but man! we lucked out. The shrimp was enormous and perfectly cooked. The risotto was fabulous. I am not a risotto professional - but this tasted perfect. Oh! And those leeks. I have never had leeks like that before - yum.
Apple Cobbler - My husband's favorite dessert. The apples were just how I like them - a little on the crunchy side. My mouth is still watering. Mmm. That was good.
Go try out this place. I think I may take my Mom for Mother's Day. Perfect for any lunch or dinner.
