TRIO: Taste the Eponymous Trio of Steak, Seafood, and Wine

July 23, 2014 11:02 am

Steps from Austin’s bustling downtown and overlooking scenic Lady Bird Lake, TRIO gives diners the best of both worlds. Trio’s carefully-curated menu offers both steak (range) and seafood (Gulf) options. Gulf offerings include Texas shrimp served with red mole sauce, shishito peppers, and corncakes and grouper prepared with grapefruit, roasted cipollini, and brown butter hollandaise. In addition to succulent steaks, TRIO’s range options include chicken, lamb, and antelope for more adventurous eaters. Locals love the made-to-order omelette station at Sunday brunch—as well as the unlimited mimosas, coffee, and tea. TRIO welcomes diners seven days a week for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Guests praise the attentive and accommodating service as much as the cuisine. One frequent diner had TRIO’s staff custom-create her wedding cake, while another asked (in advance) for the pastry chef to bake a birthday dessert that was not on the menu. Both were pleased with the results!

Honoring Dixie

July 23, 2014 9:01 am

With sadness, we recently said goodbye to a fabulously lovable furry friend. Dixie has been a Monarch resident since 2012 and lived in 2 different apartment homes in this building.

Dixie lived a wonderful 15 1/2 years. As a herding dog, this adoring watch dog made it a habit to scour the apartment, even the balcony, before turning in for the night, just to make sure her family was safe.

If you knew her parents, Linda and Steve, you'd know she received all of the love from her family a pet could ever ask for.
