Concierge.com's insider take:
An expensive hot spot inside the beachfront Atlantic Resort. Trina's Chef Don Pintabona is an alumnus of New York's Tribeca Grill; the sommelier, Nick Mautone, is a veteran of Gramercy Tavern. Together, they've come up with an eatery that's allegedly Sicilian (the name is derived from the Trinakria, Sicily's signature three-legged Medusa head). Diners will likely label it Mediterranean Rim, though, thanks to the spicy Arabic touchestry the tagine of baked Florida grouper, or one of the airy flatbreads served doused in unusual toppings like arugula pesto or wild mushrooms with Taleggio cheese. The interior has dark woods, leather banquettes, and crisp white tables, though the best touch, of course, is the seafront view from the wraparound terrace.
Open daily 6:30 am to 10 pm.
