Every time Carissa and I have walked by Eno’s, we have to stop and look in. It has such unique and creative interior design, and we are always game for finding a cool new pizza place. We finally got to go in and eat, and we really enjoyed it. Check out the inside:
The bar is in the middle of the restaurant floor, and the tables and booths surround it. Here is a picture of the other side of the bar:
The interior was warm and inviting. They had chalk boards with all of their wine specials, and wrote all their food and beer specials in white shoe polish on huge mirrors next to the bar. They also have these French style beach chairs in front of huge bay windows.
As far as appetizers, we recommend you start out with the cheese plate. It comes with 5 different cheeses: a rich Smoked Gouda, the classic Brie, a nice Sharp Cheddar, a creamy Mozzerella, and finally (I know it sounds gross, but it was surprisingly good) a very mild goat cheese. They serve it with pecans and this really thin crispy flat bread. It makes for a perfect appetizer.
For the ultimate test, we decided to go with the Margherita pizza, but had them throw in some pepperoni. The crust was uber thin, crispy, and delicious. It had just the right ratio of sauce to cheese, and they actually cook their pizzas in a stone oven which gives them a really nice flavor and crispiness. Take a look:
They don’t cut it in your traditional delivery style (“V” shaped slices), but in small squares. Well, any way you slice it, this thing was really tasty. The waiters and waitresses are all very attentive, friendly, and helpful. They also know a lot when it comes to their food – where it comes from, how it is prepared, etc… Eno’s seems to be committed to using organic, local, and natural products where they can, so quality seems to be their top priority.
Another great thing about Eno’s is that they have a wide and diverse drink menu, and they tend toward the smaller, local, high-quality breweries around the country. They have Moose Drool beer on tap from Montana, which I have not seen since I lived in Bozeman, Montana 6 years ago. It is a great beer. They also serve Franconia, which is made in a Brewery in McKinney, TX. If you haven’t tried it, you should. You will be surprised
