I have had more comments on my postings of Trezo Mare Ristorante than any other of my postings. People seem to be very passionate about this place, either loving it or really hating it. Personally, I have only had good experiences there, both the food and the service have been above the norm for Kansas City. That being said, Dan and I went there for lunch on Saturday to see what the $9.00 Combo Menu was like.
We decided to sit in the bar, so that we could be close to the fireplace. The bar is actually quite nice and a lot bigger than I had thought. There was one bartender and he was responsible for all the tables and he did a good job of taking care of his customers. We both ordered Stella's since they serve it on tap and checked out the menu. The lunch menu is actually quite nice and has a lot to offer.
We decided to start out with the Seared Fresh Lump Crab Cakes($14) . They serve two nice sized crab cakes with a champagne butter and baby rocket. We both thoroughly enjoyed them. We both decided on trying something from the $9 combo menu. Dan ordered the King Crab Bisque and the 1/2 Shrimp Club. The crab bisque was good, but a little too buttery and rich for my taste. The shrimp sandwich was very good, much better than either of us thought it would be. I ordered the Roasted Tomato Bisque and 1/2 Turkey Sandwich. The tomato bisque was thick, smoky and tangy-very good. The sandwich was also very good, the bread they use was grilled and both sandwiches had smoked bacon and a nice lemon aioli.
They are located at 4105 N. Mulberry KCMO 64116 816-505-3200.
