trio's gone and sfogliatelle

  • p

I noticed that Trio's on Hanover St is now vacant. That's too bad their lobster ravioli was the best.
I had to comfort myself with finally trying a sfogliatelle at Modern. It was still warm from oven.
DELICIOUS!! warm flaky pastry and creamy almond filling, who knew?

  1. I'm not surprised Trio's is gone. I know their pasta was excellent, but they were featured on the North End episode of the Phantom Gourmet show, and I was cringing because they showed the two women who run the shop making pasta, and neither of them were wearing hairnets or gloves. I'm not a germophobe, but I kept hoping that they were just doing a demo, because it was just gross. One kept saying how they put love and "a bit of themselves" into their pasta, and I couldn't help thinking "probably more than we know" from how it looked on the show.

      I doubt the lack of gloves and hairnets has anything to do with their closing. Lots of people don't use gloves, everyone at Bonfire last nite was tossing meat on the grill, salt onto the meat, didn't even cross my mind.

        agreed..I would think it's more likely a function of real estate prices on Hanover St. than kitchen cleanlines. They are reopening somewhere in Cambridge.

          Indeed, it was real estate prices as mentioned in a blurb in Sunday's City section of the Globe.
