Enrico Biscotti Company
Working Downtown has its perks. Easy bus access. Amazing people watching. And close proximity to a bevy of restaurants for lunch.
I ventured to Enrico Biscotti Company in the Strip District yesterday because I had a hankering for something delicious.
If you’ve never been to Enrico’s you should make it your mission to get there quickly. The space itself is cozy and actually used to be home an auto garage. Now it’s just home to deliciously, simple food.
Enrico’s macaroons are famous but the wood fired pizza ranks right up there. Mainly because it is delicious. I tried both the fig jam (housemade) and margarita pizza. And we put an egg on the margarita because why the hell not.
The fig jam pizza was stellar. Who knew figs could taste that good, like sweet, caramelized onions. I would eat this pizza every.damn.day.
I chatted briefly with Larry Lagattuta, the owner, and he just got back from Southern Italy where he gorged on pizza, and pasta, and bread, and artichokes, and sheep’s brain.
He brought back the best kind of inspiration: new menu items. One of which was this fantastic roasted artichoke.
As an artichoke eating virgin, I can attest that they are delicious and should never be mucked up in any dip. So stop that nonsense. Please and thank you.
My only regret is that I didn’t stop next door on my way out and grab one of those macaroons.
