I love going out to dinner and in the summer when we are so busy it’s something we do pretty often. Recently, we ate at Trio in Egg Harbor and we had a great dinner as always. I love their Grilled Tuna (nice and rare served with orzo) but I settled on the baked Rigatoni with Italian sausage and feta (yum, yum, yum). I am a huge fan of lamb and Trio’s is always done to perfection. Their menu changes, but one item that is perpetually on the menu is the Bowtie Pasta with Smoked Salmon. I tried to knock off this recipe at home and won a recipe contest with it. Mark loves the Fettuccine with Shrimp or the Whitefish … in other words we love everything on the menu.
After dinner we checked out Double Delites (just down the road) for some Italian ice cream otherwise known as Gelato. The owners Julie and Jeff Perley hand make the gelato and gourmet popcorn right in their store. (Jeff is the brother of one of the Trio owners, Ron Perley.) During the summer, Mark talks our niece Annie (who works for us) into running down to buy herself some Gelato… as long as she bring some back for him! Double Delites also ships their popcorn which would make a perfect Door County gift!
Trio and Double Delites make for a perfect Italian evening… Egg Harbor style.
