TriniChow visited one Friday evening, but the kitchen was nearly closed. With pastas and salads as the only choices, we selected the Penne Pomodoro, Chef’s Caesar Salad, and Tomato Chick Pea & Orzo Salad (this side was the standout). But, what we really wanted was on the plate at the next table standing proud – the Charred NY Strip Steak Sandwich…next time, arriving well before 8pm to get it.
