After one year in business, the owners of Trio (2661 W. 14th St.) in Tremont have decided to pull the plug. Sunday was the restaurant’s last day of service.
Chef Anthony Scolaro, who also operates the successful One Eleven Bistro
(2736 Medina Rd., 330-952-1122) in Medina, had hoped that the food-savvy neighborhood around him would support his ambitious chef-driven small-plates concept. Despite positive reviews, the restaurant never managed to gain traction, he says.
“All of our reviews were great, we got good publicity, we weren’t doing something that people didn’t like, we just could never grow the business,” reports Scolaro.
The chef will now return his focus to his popular Medina spot.
“This is the first time I’ve had to go through something like this, so it’s been a pretty shitty week,” he admits. “We took a shot.”
