Good things come in threes
And one of those good things is Trinity. Congratulations to Trinity on being chosen Best Example of a City Too Busy Clubbing to Hate by CL critics for "Best Of Atlanta 2001." Apologies to Trinity, though, for our confusion about who owns it in our Sept. 12-18 issue. We erroneously linked Trinity to a few other venues, but Trinity stands alone. The nightclub/restaurant is owned and operated by Aaron Vantosh and Robert Helmer. Trinity's executive chef is Justin A. Churchill, formerly of The Food Studio and Roman Lily Cafe. 255 Trinity Ave. 404-222-9925. www.trinitydowntown.com.
