Editorial Review of Eno

Wine, cheese, chocolate.
There are three things on Eno's menu (namely wine, chocolate and cheese), but the possibilities are endless. Upon entering the dimly lit lounge in the Intercontinental Hotel lobby, you'll be forced to grapple with weighty issues: Glass or flight? Which of the 35 international cheeses suits your sparkling wine? And the ever-perplexing quandary: passion fruit truffle or pure Valrhona chocolate? Luckily, the Eno staff boasts an encyclopedic knowledge of the house savories, and they're always on hand to help.

Intended as a "fun, sexy place," Eno pours its wine without an ounce of pretension. But don't expect fancy frills to be sacrificed in the name of approachability. Wine flights are served in Riedel crystal glasses and presented on hickory boards; cheese comes on marble boards, flanked with dried fruit, pots of honey and nuts.

The decor gets the sultry vibe going with dark, rich accents of mocha, ochre, burgundy and oxblood red. Low ceilings evoke the snug feel of a wine cellar. Guests sit at one of three communal, boomerang-shaped tables, or at a bar made of marble and rosewood. Lit with custom, blown-glass light fixtures, the bar overlooks a wine cellar filled with roughly 5,000 bottles. The back of the lounge hosts a semi-private room, where 8-10 guests can get down to tasting.

In terms of damage, expect to spend about $30 per person, and wine flights range from $13-$17.

Average cost: $10-$20
