It seems no one ever told Triniti chef/owner Ryan Hildebrand not to play with his food. Hildebrand and his talented staff craft plates that are as beautiful to look at as they are delicious. The Triniti space itself is airy, looking like something that belongs in Napa, not Montrose. The minimalist menu doesn't always give many clues as to what the final product will look like; ordering something as simple as dumplings, gnocchi or beef ribeye can lead to a traditional presentation or a thoroughly modern mix of ingredients. Early complaints about portion size have been rectified, which ensures that everyone will leave satisfied.
