Comfort Cuisine With A Contemporary Edge.
It’s hard to find a local or visitor who doesn’t love TRIO. Over the last seven years, the vibrant restaurant, housed in a gorgeous midcentury building in Palm Springs’ Uptown Design District, has become one of the most popular restaurants in town with its mod décor, eye-catching art collection, amazing food, good prices, and lively bar scene.
The diverse menu offers everything from Midwestern comfort food to Asian-inspired fare to California contemporary cuisine, and many dishes incorporate TRIO’s fresh and flavorful housemade sauces and dressings. A grilled Harris Ranch skirt steak gets some international kick from a sweet chili-soy marinade and chimichurri sauce; the TRIO-style wedge salad is topped with housemade blue cheese dressing; and the hand-breaded calamari is paired with TRIO’s own Asian dipping sauce.
The restaurant has a roster of seasonally-inspired weekly dinner specials that change every Friday and hosts Prime Rib Night on Tuesdays, when patrons pour in to enjoy an herb-crusted, slow-roasted prime rib dinner with a few signature side dishes.
Most recently, TRIO launched Liquid Catering, a full-service beverage services company focused on bringing its beloved libations and drink offerings to parties of up to 10,000 guests. And the restaurant itself is equipped to handle special events. “We love large parties and do a great job with rehearsal dinners and corporate dinners,” says general manager Tony Marchese who co-owns TRIO with executive chef Mark Van Laanen.
For those who want the taste of TRIO without having to leave home, the restaurant is now offering family-style catering, which means customers can pick up a pan of pot roast and the restaurant’s famous mac and cheese or get it delivered right to their door.
