“Trey’s” set to open

Trey Quinlan’s new restaurant – opening in the old Trattoria/Red and Moe space next to The Blue Note – is all but open (heck, they’re already The District’s dining page). There will be a soft-launch and then a full opening. As for what, exactly, it will be – who knows? Some combination of Trattoria II, global tapas, bistroItalian/Midwestern, industrial farmhouse.

Guess #1: Trey’s will confuse the hell out of some people.

Guess #2: The food will be pretty damn tasty.

I can’t wait.

  1. I’ve eaten at Trey (or is it Trey’s, possessive?) three times now, and sorry to say I am underwhelmed.

    The $4-$6 sandwiches ought to be a great deal for bar food, but the pork cutlet on toasted English muffin was tough and way oversalted. (Tracy enjoyed the Reuben, though.)

    We got the pork/black bean/jalapeno pizza a few nights ago, and it was terrible! It was also excessively salty, while simultaneously, and paradoxically, tasting really bland. How can you make a salty, spicy pizza taste so flat?

    On the plus side, we came in for a sit-down meal once (i.e. not bar food) and it was pretty good. I do like their runzas.

  2. I’ve been three or four times myself and haven’t been impressed. Some visits went better than others. Decided to give it a break and come back after they (hopefully) settle in.
