ENO Wine Bar – Happy Hour Wine Tasting, Tuesdays, 5:00-7:00PM
Stellar service, gourmet goodies, and a buzz to boot – happy hour at ENO Wine Bar, and now pizzeria, is nothing short of fabulous.
Upon arrival I was disappointed to find that prices had increased from my last visit. But after they lit the heat lamps and poured me six generous tastings ($16.00), I could have camped there all night by the fire pits while gazing out at the Del’s palm clustered, perfect pool.
My group was excited about the quality of wines and food, especially the new artisan pizzas. There is now a wood fired oven placed outside and a chef who prepares your pie right in front of you. This was the best pizza I’ve had on the island (sorry Alexander’s I still love you). Their dough, sauce, and select toppings are made on sight and it’s quality you can taste. I was especially impressed with the homemade fennel sausage and veal meatballs. Pizzas can also be ordered to go and would make for a delicious beach picnic.
*call ahead to be sure they are not closed for a private event
$16 for six glasses pretty good. What's the catch? Pizza cheap, too? I remember paying north of $20 for b&b at the Del, so maybe they suck you in for high prices after 7.
Wine is definitely the better deal. Pizza is $15-$18 for a ten inch...no happy hour special. Worth the price if you are craving a truly artisan pizza.
Pool Hoppers Anonymous
Have you ever gazed longingly at the Del’s perfect pool and flirted with the idea of sneaking in? Maybe some have dared, but I’ve always been deterred by the possibility and embarrassment of being caught – not the case with many local teens.
According to my sources, Nado’s local kids sneak in all the time. They go in the gate when left open by an exiting guest, or they take the elevator. I’ve never ridden the elevator in the Del, but apparently you can exit on a pool entry level. The Del is not alone; these kids spilled the beans on many other local pools they’ve crashed. Kind of wishing I grew up in Coronado – sure sounds like a good time.
