Both Trio Bistro and Embers Restaurant, sister eateries in Kenwood, are reopening for carry-out service starting April 30.
Trio will be open from 11 a.m.-8 p.m. daily and will be serving its full American-style bistro menu of steaks, seafood, pasta, big salads and desserts. See the menu online and order by calling 513-984-1905. Call them once you arrive at the restaurant (7565 Kenwood Road) and they'll run your order out to your car.
If you haven't had a Trio Cobb salad, we gave it a Best Of Cincinnati staff pick a few years ago:
Many origin stories exist for the creation of the Cobb salad, the most popular of which is that it was created for Hollywood Brown Derby restaurant owner Robert Howard Cobb in the 1930s. Traditionally served with romaine lettuce, hardboiled egg, avocado, tomato, chicken, onion, bacon and blue cheese dressing — use the mnemonic device EAT COBB to remember the ingredients — restaurants will vary their take on the timeless chop with “Southwestern” options or by adding unique cheese. But Trio Bistro in Kenwood sticks to tradition — kind of. One of the most popular items on the menu, the salad is topped with a garlicky house ranch instead of Roquefort dressing. To get the much-missed flavorful profile of blue cheese, order a house martini with stuffed blue cheese olives to accompany your meal. It’s strong and cold and harkens back to those Brown Derby days, especially since you’ll most likely be dining with early birds and the classy blue-hair broads that frequent the joint.
At Embers, the hours are 4-8 p.m. daily and this will be their first time open to serve lunch. They will also be serving their full menu of steaks, ribs, seafood, sushi and dessert. Call 513-874-8090 to place your order, and then call once you arrive at their restaurant (8170 Montgomery Road) and they'll run your food out to you.
*Trio has updated its hours since this was posted originally. Hours are now 4-8 p.m. instead of 11 a.m.-8 p.m.
