Wicked City Eats: Italian, Cantonese or French?
If you’ve ever marveled at a Marvel movie, you might be surprised to know the whole thing was filmed and CGI’d down at Trillith Studios in Fayetteville. Yes, that Fayetteville. You might also be surprised if you visited the Trillith Studios area to find a massive, modern mixed-use development there called Town at Trillith, complete with homes, offices, lofts and a bustling town center with shops, restaurants and performance stages. If you have ever been to Rosemary Beach in Florida or Serenbe down in Chattahoochee Hills, that’s the sort of manufactured high-design idyllic vibe you can expect. And sitting on a corner in that town center sits the charming Enzo Steakhouse & Bar, an Italian gem offering “a cultural dialog between Northern Italy and the New American South.” Executive chef Andrea Montobbio boasts native-Italian heritage and high-end Italian kitchen pedigree, firing off gorgeous plates like octopus carpaccio, pastas like lemon tagliolini with snow crab, and divine cuts of meat like dry-aged tomahawk steaks and beautiful racks of lamb. Yes, Enzo is worth a drive from about anywhere in the Atlanta metro and this is a concept that could easily thrive in any of the tony neighborhoods to the north. But somehow it belongs down in Trillith, so you’ll have to make the trek to marvel at it.
