Coming from a true college town that prides itself on quality restaurants (read my reviews for hints), I had high hopes for Trey. I didn't pick the place - dinner was part of a business trip.
The original building was a bakery, as told by the tiles at the front door. The space is long, but you never feel cramped. The Edison bulbs in the lobster pots hanging as lighting lend to the quasi-funky décor.
The waiter was attentive and not pushy. For starters, our group of five either chose the spinach and arugula salad or the kale salad. I went with the spinach and was not disappointed - crisp greens, not too much fennel, and the grapefruit chunks was a nice contrast to what would have been a bitter mix. Quite refreshing. The kale salad looked very tasty (I didn't try - it was a business meal), and people wondered if it was the kale's preparation or the dressing that did it.
Even though it was a business meal, wine was part of the meal. I had a glass of the zinfandel, and although I didn't remember the name, it was a decent zin. I think the bottle may have been left open too long, or had not been re-corked. it was beginning to have a tinny bite, but it was acceptable.
There was a filet on the menu, but since I wasn't footing the bill (I want to work for these people!), I decided to go with the Bolognese. I was extremely pleased with this choice - fresh pasta, well-seasoned meat, and a wonderfully fresh and tart tomato sauce. Some of the best Bolognese I've had outside of Italy. The halibut looked good, the asparagus was fresh (I asked), and the large pizzas (personal?) were gobbled with relish.
I believe Trey is worth another visit - now let's see if I get the job! :P
