This week’s dining spotlight is on Tria, the wine, cheese and beer cafe with two locations in Center City: Rittenhouse (18th and Sansom) and Wash-West (12th and Spruce).
Tria focuses on the fermentation trio of wine, beer and cheese. Sublime and hard-to-find cheeses are imported from New York’s famous Murray’s Cheese Shop; world-class craft beers come from small breweries as close as Yards in Philadelphia and as far as Kiuchi Brewery in Japan; and the terrific wine list boasts several lesser-known vintages at reasonable prices.
The kitchen produces a nice array of light fare that pairs perfectly with the wine and beer. While the menu changes often to reflect what’s in season, the small plates, salads and sandwiches are consistently delicious.
Tria also hosts events regularly, like special beer tastings with brewers showcasing their handiwork and similar events where winemakers pay a visit to offer tastes of their product in person.
And, of course, Sunday School, which you definitely do not want to miss.
