ROCKPORT – Tre’Vione’s held a grand opening and ribbon cutting Friday at its new Main Street location, officially marking its arrival on the local cuisine scene. Owner George Banks welcomed quite a crowd to the restaurant, which has already proven quite popular during its brief “soft opening” period.
George thanked city officials and residents for helping hype up for the grand opening, and bearing with the restaurant for the predictable hiccups that often accompany the launch of a new business. There are still some menu items waiting to launch, but there are no shortage of cajun classics to be had in Rockport that can be hard to find elsewhere in the region.
“I wish I could take Rockport and give it a big hug,” said George. “You can’t get this everywhere.”
While cajun food, and it’s competing creole cousins, have a reputation for spiciness and exotics, George said there are plenty of American staples to be found as well. He joked that while New Orleans, Louisiana, his hometown, has a well-deserved reputation as a melting pot, the end result is imminently American.
