While traditional pasta dishes are passed down from generation to generation, recipes occasionally mutate into lesser-known hybrids such as the spaghetti squash and the lasagna milkshake. Stay in touch with the continually evolving culinary landscape with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of fine Italian cuisine and drinks at Tre Monti Ristorante in Troy.
Tre Monti Ristorante artistically reinvents authentic Italian dishes in a handsome space that embodies both traditional Old World charm and urban chic. Diners can jump-start taste buds with the salmone affumicato, a light dish of pastrami-style Norwegian-smoked-salmon crostini adorned with goat cheese, horseradish, and quail eggs ($12), and keep flavor tides rolling in with the zuppa di funghi selvatici, a friendly blend of wild mushrooms, truffle puree, and sherry cream ($7).
Ecstatic salivary glands can pore over the expansive entree list, loaded with pasta and meat dishes such as the medaglioni di vitello, a Provimi-veal-tenderloin puff pastry laden with spinach, prosciutto, goat cheese, and porcini mushrooms dressed in a thyme-madeira wine reduction ($30). A full range of Italian and American wines, champagnes, and specialty cocktails, such as the Pandora, a blend of chardonnay, Bombay Sapphire gin, violet-flower syrup, and white-grape juice, keep foodstuffs company in the murky depths of unexplored stomachs.
Tables spill out from beneath the towering ceilings onto the large outdoor patio and private-event rooms. Guests are encouraged to wear business-casual attire, as full stomachs and idle chit-chat around the decorative pools may result in impromptu job interviews. Tre Monti Ristorante also serves up lunch and bar eats.
- Sauces, from the fresh-tasting pomodoro to the meat sauce (admirably light even though the menu calls it "hearty"), and the excellent minestrone are probably the best indications of the skill in the kitchen, and they truly measure up. – Molly Abraham, Detroit News
