Tria Taproom Opens in Rittenhouse

Over the weekend, the doors opened quietly at Tria Taproom at 2005 Walnut Street, the former home of Rum Bar. It’s Jon Myerow and Michael McCaulley’s third spot, joining the original Tria cafe just a couple of block away at 18th and Sansom and another Tria in Wash West. (Tria Wine Room in West Philly closed after just under three years this May.)
This venture stands out from the previous Trias in two major ways. First, all beverages will come from the tap, from wine (a dozen) to beer (two dozen), plus a couple of hard ciders and two soft drinks, per The Insider's Michael Klein. “Not a bottle in the building,” is the official line from the owners.
Second, there is an oven. While the other Tria kitchens focus on cheese plus the toasts, salads and condiments that go with it, Tria Taproom inherited and is making good use of a wood-fired oven. Look for an assortment of grilled flatbreads, grilled fish and veggies ranging from $6-$16. There are also several cheese plates on offer.
Tria Taproom is currently open 4 PM through late night, daily. Lunch will begin in a couple of weeks.
