ENO, from the root word for wine, embodies Doug and Brenda Strickland's vision of the good life, Euro-Mediterranean style. The restaurant/ wine bar/sidewalk café is light and airy, thanks to its open glass doors, and touches like ironwork on the windows give it a Mediterranean feel; yet it's sophisticated, with a changing collection of contemporary art on view. The atmosphere is casual, but the food and wine are fine indeed. In 2008, ENO welcomed 24-year-old wünderkind Executive Chef Eli Kirshtein. (Dig into his contemporary Mediterranean dishes like whole roasted fish with singed black olives, roasted fennel and potatoes, with Broglia's 2006 Gavi di Gavi from Piedmont.) If you're in town, stop by for Wednesday Wine Tastings in the Bar: 10 wines for $10.
