JM ate the sausage and mushroom pizza.
Nichole ate the mache salad.
We split the halibut with lobster risotto.
The bill was about $40, or $20/person, plus tip.
JM gave Eno Vino an A-; Nichole gave Eno Vino a B (see our grading rubric).
They've got a veritable wine bible, but no lemonade. Schade. That lacuna, paired with the intensely garlicky butter (again!) was tough to take. It did spur a conversation about how you can have too much garlic, but never too much bacon. More research is warranted. (Or just more bacon.)
The pizza was the first one we'd had with sauteed mushrooms - yum. The sauce had too raw a tomato flavor but overall it was a good choice.
Nichole will state for the record that her mache, cranberry, pear, and bleu cheese salad was pretty damn good.
The gem of the meal was the lobster risotto with grilled halibut, which was melt-in-the mouth sublime. That, and the über-friendly service, almost countered the ambience, which was too loud, too frou, and too fake. We'd call it a perfect place for an upwardly mobile girls' night out.
