Anyone been to Tria recently and if so how was it? Coming to town first weekend in August and looking for a place for lunch. Thanks.

    One of my favorite places to get a light bite, enjoy an excellent glass of wine/beer. Perfect place for lunch.
    The truffled egg toast....my guilty pleasure...it's awesome.
    Mixed Greens with Mission Figs, Gorgonzola, Pine Nuts and Gorgonzola-Pine Nut Vinaigrette....love it.
    Wild Mushrooms with Grana Padano, Fontina, Baby Spinach and Lemon-Infused Olive Oil Panino...love it.

      Tria's a fantastic light bite. I can make a meal out of all the brushetta varieties - they're all so different and tasty. The sandwiches are really fresh as well.

      I like Tria for lunch. The sandwiches are a good value at around $8 and they come with a small salad. I really like the artichoke and pepper panino. I've also tried the brushetta, a good appetizer for one person (too small to share). My only complaint with the place is it's noisy.

        I was just there for lunch last week and it was as good as ever. I have never had a problem getting a table right away at lunchtime. I tried the smoked salmon salad for the first time. It was good, but not as good as the duck salad. They had a terrific fresh fig special, and the mushroom bruschetta was to die for. Tria is a great choice. Have fun!

          It is a wonderful place. Although I have never been there for lunch, it does get very crowded at dinner time. I dont like crowds so I rarely go there anymore unless I can get a table outside. Any and all of their salads are perfect.

            It's absolutely wonderful (well maybe not the dessert). The truffled egg toast and duck salads were great. The bread pudding (even though I ate it all) was a bit too odd for me...the flavors did not seem to jive. Get there early (if you hit the one near Rittenhouse) because it is filled up by 12:30.
