A Trio of Trio
Café Trio first opened its doors in Salt Lake City (680 S. 900 East) in 2002. The success of the downtown restaurant was followed in 2005 with the opening of a second location, this one in Cottonwood Heights (6405 S. 3000 East). And now, according to owners Mikel Trapp, Dan Camp and Jimmy Santangelo, a third Trio is coming our way in early 2017. The new eatery will be located in Park City's Kimball Junction, across from Whole Foods at 6585 Landmark Drive. The restaurant offers flatbreads, stone-fired pizzas, small plates, pastas, salads, soups, and entrées with an innovative wine, beer and cocktail selection in a relaxed atmosphere—no reservations needed.
