food on friday

OMG. I went to the best restauant recently.  I even told our waitress that the food I was eating was like a party in my mouth.  It was that good.

I bought a groupon (if you don't know what this is, you're missing out big time, sign up here for your city) awhile back for a restaurant on the plaza called Cafe Trio.  Upon looking at the menu, I knew that I had to buy it.  My mouth was watering looking at all of the yummy stuff listed.

I took one of my BFF's Scott with me since he likes trying new places almost as much as I do and both of us raved all night about how good the food was. 

BEST DISH EVER: Prince Edward Island Mussels.  I didn't think that I even liked mussels, but these were amazing.  Seriously amazing.  They were cooked in a white wine garlic cream sauce (100% healthy), pancetta, tomatoes, and fennel.  There was also some crusty bread that we sopped up the amazing sauce with.  When I go back, I will be ordering these again.

Our meal came with a salad and at first I ordered a vinaigrette.  Then opted for some blue cheese.  I mean my diet was already screwed for the night so why not add to the damage?  I'm glad I went with the blue cheese though, it was a-mazing.

And then, the main course: Cowboy Bone-N-Ribeye Steak (KC's Best according to the menu) (cooked medium), aspargus and mashed potatoes.  We split the steak a) because it would be cheaper; b) because I only ate half of my portion and c) because we had a crapton of food. The steak had a yummy sweet onion glaze on it.  It was delightful.

And to top off the night a lovely text from Scott (which completely sums up our friendship):

Thanks for the asparagus pee.  I had fun.

  1. Oh yum! It all looks amazing! I'm a groupon junkie too. I just bought a groupon deal for 2 spider vein removal sessions. We'll see if I just got a screaming deal or ruined my legs.
