Last night we decided to try out Trezo Mare again. They have started a first seating menu, Saturday through Thursday, from 4:00 to 6:00 PM. The cost is $65 per couple and it really is a great deal. We typically do not eat that early , but Dan was home early enough and we decided to take advantage of the deal. Each couple gets to share a starter, then each guest either gets a crisp greens salad or roasted tomato bisque, a choice of entree including grilled asparagus and whipped roasted garlic Yukons and share a dessert. Let me tell you, the food and service were both great and the portions were almost too big.
We started off with the buttermilk-battered langoustine which was cooked to perfection, covered with fresh grated Parmesan and served with a nice tomato confit. We both had a big bowl of the roasted tomato bisque, which has a nice smoky flavor and nice hint of Balsamic vinegar to it. Dan had the salmon with a nice chive hollandaise. He did have to send the fish back, because it was a little undercooked for him. I had the ahi tuna with an incredible pepernota sauce. I don't even like tuna, but this huge chunk of fish was very nice with the flavorful tomato, red pepper, basil laden pepernota. I would probably order one of the steak choices next time, but I did want to branch out a little. We ended the meal with a nice warm apple tart, served with ice cream in a delicious nut brittle bowl. over all the bill was $100, 30 of it was the alcohol and 10 was the tax. This is really a great way to try out a nice new Kansas City restaurant. If you can't make it on a weeknight, you should try it out on Sunday. The are located at Briarcliff Village 4105 N. Mulberry. They also have what looks like a great Sunday brunch from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm.
