When we first tipped off that Tria Cafe was coming to the old Dmitri’s at 23rd and Pine we admittedly rolled our eyes. After all, just about every restaurant vacancy is rumored to become a Tria. It’s usually just wishful thinking but the neighbors of Fitler Square can cheer, Tria is really coming to the neighborhood.
Owner Jonathan Myerow told Michael Klein that the former Mediterranean restaurant will feature a full kitchen, “be more dinner-friendly” and serve a weekend brunch.
Look for the latest Tria to open before the year ends. Myerow also owns Tria Cafe locations at 18th and Sansom, 12th and Pine and Tria Taproom at 20th and Walnut.

Way back in 2004, a former ice cream parlor at 18th and Sansom turned into a little bar named Tria. The first would-be guest walked out because he was looking for a martini. But that second guest actually bought something. And now, ten years later Tria is still going strong and they’re celebrating. On Tuesday, April 29th, the bar is pouring special beverages at anniversary-special prices.

Philly Wine Week hits day three and the events are heating up.
If you thought Marnie Old’s pairing class for industry professionals sounded cool yesterday, she’s repeating it for consumers tonight at the German Society of Pennsylvania.
Osteria is hosting Sue Miller of Birchrun Hill Farms and they’ll be pairing wine and cheese for happy hour.

Today is the kickoff of the first ever Philly Wine Week. The celebration of wine in Philadelphia officially gets underway with the Bubbles and Barrels event today at Ristorante Panorama but that’s not the only event happening today.
You could say it is wine week every week at Tria Cafe but they’re certainly turning it up this week. For Sunday School today, it’s a “Jura Jaunt.” Both Tria Cafe locations will be pouring a Savagnin “La Pierre” from from Les Granges Paquenesses. Normally this glass is $14.50 but it is just $7 a glass for Sunday School.
Late night, the nightly Toast at Ten will kick off at Barbuzzo where the first 50 people will receive a complimentary prosecco kumquat shooter with oyster. Other food and drink deals will be offered.

Just about every restaurant in the Philadelphia is doing a special menu for Valentine’s Day. Many of which are being offered all weekend. Instead of listing all of those, here are some more offbeat ideas for Valentine’s Day, like eating budino and binge watching House of Cards, Season II on Netflix (which comes out on the 14th). Significant other, totally optional.

Congratulations, you made it all the way to New Year’s Eve without making solid plans. Let’s face it, New Year’s Eve is so overhyped, overpriced and overdone, that you refuse to make a big deal about the day. But you’re a social person and aren’t the type to skip a party. So here are some last moment suggestions for tonight.

This Friday, May 17th will be the last day for Univesity City’s Tria Wine Room. The little sibbling of Center City’s Tria locations opened in October, 2010 as Biba and has developed a number of loyal guests, but “that number is too small to make Tria Wine Room a viable business.” We always enjoyed the intimate space and the splendid deck.
As a way to say goodbye, Tria Wine room is extending its Off the Beaten Vine Happy Hour an additional hour. Enjoy excellent and unusual wines tonight through Friday from 4 to 7 p.m. for just $5.
Tria will be expanding back to three this summer with Tria Taproom, Tria’s take on beer, pizza and of course wine. That project is under construction at 2005 Walnut Street, the former home of Rum Bar.

The original Tria location at 18th and Sansom turns nine years old today. So as you might guess, the Rittenhouse wine bar is celebrating. And when a wine bar celebrates, that means Champagne. All day today Tria will be offering Thierry Triolet Champagne from opening to close for just $9 per glass.
So stop in and a glass or three and toast Tria on their first nine years.

Adultery web site, Ashley Madison has released the ten most popular restaurants for cheating couples in Philadelphia. Barclay Prime came in at number one, number ten was Ruby Tuesday. Smack in the middle is Tria, which we’re sure was referred to as “the other Tria” by everyone polled.
