  • $10 for $20 worth of food and drinks during lunch
  • $15 for $30 worth of food and drinks during dinner

The private dinner begins with servings of zucchini and corn fritters, served with a spicy lemon-and-dijon yogurt sauce, before moving on to plates of crunchy greek salad. Servings of gnocchi are followed by a diner’s choice of either moussaka—a layered slab of parmesan, mozzarella, feta, marinara, and butternut squash that is similar to a pasta-less lasagna—or a moroccan lamb stew served over couscous. A sweet-bread pudding rounds out the meal.

Dinners can begin with plates of fried butternut-squash ravioli ($8) or zucchini and corn fritters ($8). Entrees include lamb shank served with butternut-squash risotto and seasonal vegetables ($20), and ground beef and lamb in dumplings draped in marinara sauce ($18).The lunch menu includes salads ($8) and sandwiches such as an open-faced lamb burger, which rests on a pesto pita covered in fruit salsa and cumin-cucumber-yogurt sauce ($12).

Trio Restaurant

At Trio Restaurant, head chef Gonul Blum synthesizes the flavors of her native Turkey using ingredients grown organically in Northern California. In the kitchen, she adds French and Spanish touches to a melting pot of New American dishes, including curried chicken and moroccan lamb stew. Out in the spacious dining room, soft golden lights illuminate the tan booths and dark wooden tables where guests devour seasonal dishes and sip cocktails. Trio’s gourmet market also supplies diners with a selection of dried teas, herbs from Gonul’s own garden, and housemade sauces and marmalades to spread over otherwise inedible laptop computers.
