This was pretty good and the beef was tender. I enjoyed that the roast had a good amount of fat for extra flavor. It was definitely a comforting dish.

Figs, arugula, fresh ricotta, chopped hazelnuts, honey and white wine vinaigrette. $9
Trio Restaurant, Palm Springs CA

Ew, this salad was sweeter than dessert! The honey and white wine vinaigrette was WAY too sweet and the fresh ricotta and pulverized hazelnuts added a weird texture to this sad, overly dressed salad.

This was one of the dishes that I actually liked at Trio. This stew was super flavorful and had plenty of seafood. Thank goodness dinner wasn’t a complete disappointment!

Baby beets, mixed greens, pecans, blue cheese, citrus sections, balsamic vinaigrette. $9
Trio Restaurant, Palm Springs CA

You can’t really tell, but there are tiny pieces of roasted beets in there – I swear! That was another disappointing thing about this restaurant – if I’m ordering a beet salad, I think the beets should be a prominent component! Ugh!

Blend of white wines, a splash of this and a splash of that, fresh fruit. $8
Trio Restaurant, Palm Springs CA

This was ok, but I wish it was a little more flavorful. Ugh, I did not enjoy this restaurant at all! The food was mediocre (as you will see), the service was green, and the decor and atmosphere didn’t mesh well.
