Crush Up with Trios Enteca .... !
This wine bar has a happy hour that runs through Saturday and even includes a few 1/2 price specials on select bottles of wine. First time I've ever seen than in my *ahem* nationwide quest/survey to find great happy hours.
This is a wine bar that also has food so, go in knowing that. The menu has fairly small prices and small portions but with a pretty large taste. I expected mostly Italian but, the food menu has tapas, appetizers and entrees. That's right..appetizers and also the spanish word for appetizers. I half expected to see a section for mandoo since they list cuisine from so many food genres.
We tried 2 pizzas which were both really great along with a bunch of small plates--they really are small plates though, as there are only a couple of items on each dish (for instance, the Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus dish was a spare 2 stalks, and the Ahi Skewers had just 2 cuts of tuna, so we cut them up to share. But then again, there were 6 Potstickers). We ordered many plates, and together it was all just enough for 6 girls, and it did gave us a lot of variety.
Trios truly has what you are looking for in a Lodo evening experience. Who isn't interested in great light jazz or blues, a relaxed venue and a sizable mixture of tasty entrees and appetizers? Add to it a good mix of wine that may be second to none in Denver and I think you have found a second home! Early in the evening they serve the best exotic, gourmet pizza in Denver. The crust is light, flakey and covered with a good portion of fresh vegetables, cheese, seafood or meats.
Their food menu is surprisingly extensive for a wine bar, and I have to say, their pizzas are remarkable. It's completely cliche and boring to order a pizza, but theirs are worth giving a shot. The crusts are cripsy, buttery and flakey (almost as if it were a croissant) and the toppings are fresh and gourmet to the max. My favorite is the one with Pancetta, Chevre, Mushrooms and Mozzarella.
