Tria is located right off Rittenhouse Square, very close to the other Center City hotspots. It has the best little beer list in the world. There are about 8 or so taps and 15 or so bottles. But each of those is a world-class beer from a different style. 90 Minute, Saison Dupont, Kasteel Tripel, Rosé de Gambrinus, etc. The wine and cheese list are also equally amazing. I had a Rioja whose name I forget that absolutely knocked my socks off. The cheese is really good, cut as you order it, paired with a certain food that accentuates the taste perfectly (walnuts in syurp, some weird berries, etc.). They also have finger sandwiches and small snacks I haven't yet gotten to.

Everything is a bit expensive, but it's pretty reasonable at the same time, due to the high quality...plus the neighborhood it's in. The service is friendly and quick, and was smart enough to warn us before popping open a bottle of Rosé de Gambrinus, saying they couldn't take it back if we didn't like it and that it was pretty sour. The place has sort of a modern euro feel and the crowd is the younger jetset type.

As I mentioned before, it's right off of Rittenhouse Square with its fancy shopping. This also puts it right near Monk's, Nodding Head and Ludwig's. Might be hard to plan to stop in if you're spending a limited amount of time in town, but if you're in town a lot it makes a nice shift from the same old same old.
