Housed in a mid-century modern landmark building that once operated as a bank, TRIO Restaurant has reaped dividends to become a desert treasure in the trendy Uptown Design District of Palm Springs.

Among its accolades, TRIO has been highly rated on; was most recently honored as one of the top 100 restaurants in the U.S. by, and voted by Palm Springs Life readers as best restaurant for three years in a row.

Since opening in 2009, TRIO’s owners, restaurateur Tony Marchese and Executive Chef Mark Van Laanen, have successfully created a restaurant that has delicious food paired with great energy.

The restaurant’s decor is lively and upbeat, with vibrant splashes of color and creative lighting that includes a show-stopping rubber-wrapped chandelier illuminating the elevated, semi-private dining area. A new outdoor patio area let’s dinners soak in the local “vibe”.

TRIO’s Midwest-inspired comfort food served with a Californian flair can be seen in an extensive menu featuring a variety of fish, steaks, salads, plus seasonal and local items. Van Laanen consistently keeps the menu fresh with exciting new dishes and nightly specials.
