Here are the basics: Trio on the Bay, a "casual yet upscale dining, drinking, dancing, and entertainment" venue, is moving to the sprawling indoor/outdoor space on the 79th Street/JFK Causeway. "Trio" refers not only to the dining/drinking/dancing aspects but also to the three veteran operators behind the venture: Louie Spetrini as GM, Gerry Kelly as nightlife operator, and Klime Kovaceski as executive chef. If you don't know who these three men are, you probably haven't been living in Miami long.
An opening-night invite-only party will take place this Saturday at Trio on the Bay. Then on Tuesday, April 5, beginning at 5 p.m., Trio will officially be open to the public. We have exclusive first photos of Trio, as well as food and wine menus. Next week, we'll take a closer look at the food and speak with the Trio team.
