A few weeks ago I mentioned that an old friend had reconnected with me because a friend had googled her and found her name on my blog. Cheryl came to town and we went to dinner, and she's just as gorgeous and brilliant as ever. We had so much fun catching up, eating and drinking and dishing about life, and I'm glad she comes to Salt Lake regularly so we can do it again soon.
Cheryl and I had our catch-up dinner at Cafe Trio, a restaurant where I've had a lot of South Beach Friendly meals. This was most definitely NOT one of those meals. All stops are out when you're having dinner with someone you haven't seen for more than ten years. We shared everything and this was a perfect dinner for two old friends.
To start out, Rosemary Flatbread with roasted tomatoes, roasted peppers, and warmed goat cheese. Can you imagine how wonderful this tastes?
I thought we had mussels, but the menu I brought home says Manilla Clams with basil, shaved garlic, tomatoes and white wine butter sauce. Any shellfish experts out there? Anyway, they were delicious.
This was Cedar Plank Organic Salmon on the menu, although apparently the U.S.D.A. doesn't have any standards for salmon to be labeled organic. Nevertheless, it was quite yummy. It was served with basil farro, tomatoes, balsamic butter sauce and herb salad.
For dessert, the ultimate food porn, Toll House Pie. By the way, all these photos were taken with my old camera, but luckily I was by the window so they actually turned out pretty well.

Although I did tell the server I was a food blogger and asked if I could take photos, we paid for the dinner at Trio, and they had no idea I would be writing this post about the restaurant. I don't really write restaurant "reviews" but once in a while I talk about restaurants in Salt Lake and Restaurants in other cities where I've had great meals.
