Trio, a restaurant that has polarized the Sacramento restaurant critic community, closed its doors on Oct. 10.
It left a message on its Web site saying:
We are Closed
October 10 was our last day. Trio has been sold and a new and sophisticated Sushi restaurant will take our place. Look for that opening in December
The restaurant's phone number has already been disconnected, and there was no notice of the closure on the restaurant's doors on Sunday afternoon. In fact, it looks like the business closed at the end of business one day, and never reopened. A quick peek inside the windows revealed that wine bottles look like there're arranged for sale and the restaurant's dining furniture hasn't been moved at all.
Judging by the Web site, the move was not long planned. On their site's "Meet Gonul" Blum page, the former owner and chef of Trio, it says that:
With the growing success of Trio, the Vanilla Bean closed in early January 2013.
I am excited that the Kings will be moving a long block away from Trio in a couple of years. Look for more changes and improvements — on the table: a full bar and outdoor seating.
My guess is that there's more to this story. I'll share it if I find out more. Also, thanks to reader Aaron for the tip.
Trio first opened in mid 2012. Chef/owner Blum previously owned Vanilla Bean Bistro on J Street in East Sac, which had been previously named Gnoul's J St. Bistro.
