TrioThis week Craig LaBan heads to Fairmount to try neighborhood eatery, Trio. And LaBan finds the Thai fusion BYO is a welcome addition to the Art Museum area.
“Trio is a rarity in this era of the super-hot corner BYO: a neighborhood place truly intended for its neighbors, with entrees that show some style and effort, but priced at mostly less than $20.”
The pad Thai is among the city’s best and an excellent choice either to eat in or take out. The jumbo shrimp “exuded the minty perfume of Thai basil.” And the sesame-seared tuna had a “rare sense of flavor balance.”
Finish it all off with the creme brulee and you’ll be saying, “what a lucky neighborhood.
