New in Town | Pago Group’s Trestle Tavern

Everyone has been antsy for this new opening from Pago Group!

I am happy to announce, that as of this last Monday, Trestle Tavern is now open.

Trestle Tavern

I was able to attend a media preview/soft opening for this new kid in town, and was so excited to see how Trestle Tavern would utilize/change the space that was formerly Fresco. I was also interested to see how the food would differ from that of well-loved Pago, FINCA, East Liberty Tap House, or Hub & Spoke Diner.

Good news — the food is different
(modern pub fare with a nod towards Eastern Europe),
and it is delicious!

“Like the restaurants in our group, Trestle Tavern will use high-quality, locally-sourced ingredients as a foundation for the menu.  The menu is from scratch and brings a modern update, plus European flair, to classic pub dishes. Heading the kitchen is Chef de Cuisine Troy Thomas, formerly with us at East Liberty Tap House, and pastries by our Pago Restaurant Group Executive Pastry Chef, Natalie Keller.” –Pago Restaurant Group

And for those who loved Fresco — never fear, so much of what you loved still exists: the warm and gorgeous patio, the cozy fire place, and the neighborhood community-centered atmosphere. It is all still there and waiting for you.

Trestle Tavern is all about comfort; both in atmosphere and food. The menu is full of familiar dishes, all of which make you feel loved and happy just reading about them. From cabbage rolls, to spatzle and cheese, to a variety of pierogi’s — the menu is well crafted, thought out, and showcases fresh and high-end ingredients. The variety of dishes that we tried were all very well seasoned, full of flavor, and left us happy.

Here are a few items that we tried and a peek at what Trestle Tavern is all about. (The cocktail menu is supposed to roll out this week, so I am super excited to get back and check it out!)

What was readily noticeable about the new Trestle Tavern?

It’s beautiful — and left intact what many people loved about the vibe of Fresco. The menu is different than what any other Pago Restaurant is serving (or any other restaurant right now, for that matter), and the price point is super reasonable compared to the current SLC market– and, the ingredients are top notch. If you want comfort food that won’t make you feel heavy or overdone, take a break with friends or family at Trestle Tavern.

Don’t miss their great wine and beer menu and great selections of cider!

And, I’ll keep you posted on cocktails!
