Cafe Trio - KC

My SO and I went to Cafe Trio last night for the first time and were very impressed. We both ordered specials - they are doing a Tour de France inspired menu so the specials were French inspired. The house salad that came with my meal was wonderful - nut encrusted chevre on mixed greens with pistachios and a citrus vinaigrette. SO just wanted mixed greens and was cheerfully accomodated.

My entree was a grilled whole sea bass stuffed with lemon slices and rosemary. It was beautifully presented with a lemony sauce and yellow tomatoes. Delicious. SO's entree was grilled duck breast with a cherry sauce. The breast was a perfectly cooked medium rare. Both entrees were accompanied by artichoke hearts and haricots vertes.

We sat in the lounge so we had great people-watching of a bachelorette party next to us, the very animinated and hot crowd on their patio and the pedestrian traffic on the plaza. Very friendly and fun server. We will go back soon to try their regular menu.

  1. Glad you had a nice time at Trio. The two times I have been I was ignored. So badly the last time, that the server said "Oh! I forgot about you guys." Yeah........
    Food was tasty as is the bar selection. Nice Happy Hour.

      I've been to their patio 2x in the last 6 months. Always was pleased. Service was very attentive, and our food was excellent. I think this is one treasure, when you want outdoor dining in KC and the weather is glorious....
