“This is a restaurant that’s always evolving, investigating, learning and looking to do better things,” says executive chef Scott Anderson. “People have told us they were intimidated to come here, eat ingredients they don’t know about, but they have left so happy.” That’s because for all that Anderson pushes the New American envelope, his respect for seasonal ingredients—a dizzying variety, whether foraged, fished or farmed locally, or obtained from the best sources around the world—anchors his creativity. “More and more,” he says, “people are trusting us.” Elements puts the mmmm in modernism.
Eno Terra uses local produce, meat and fish to supply fresh ingredients and to support the local community. In addition to its large selection of gourmet meals, it also has an array of wine and desserts.

In thrashing New Jersey last August, Hurricane Irene flooded the basement of Eno Terra and closed the restaurant for 24 days. Not until Thanksgiving was it able to offer its full menu. The ordeal knit the staff closer and heightened their commitment to executive chef Chris Albrecht’s vision of an Italian-influenced cuisine focused on what he calls “a taste of place.” Perhaps that’s just another way of saying fresh, local, seasonal and farm-to-table (a phrase chefs are sick of even as they do it more). So almost 200 different kinds of fruit and produce flow during the course of the year into Eno Terra’s larder from its now two acres at Canal Farm down the road. A direct pipeline to fishermen is introducing fresher specimens and more varied species to the sparklingly executed menu. “People often look at us as a special-occasion restaurant,” says Albrecht. “I really want to stress that you can come in and enjoy us any number of ways that are value driven.”
