Trio is a wonderful place for a lunch for two, dinner with a large group, happy hour, or all of the above. The ahi tuna tacos with avocado were amazing, and so was the bread pudding. Fun, cool vibe.

I believe Trio may still be closed due to a recent fire. I'd check their website and call them directly to ask about the peanut question.
