opprairie.com Dining Out the orland park prairie | September 29, 2016 | 23 The Dish Enrico’s Italian Dining redefines tradition at new Frankfort location Rotating specials, signature meals attract patrons Thomas Czaja Contributing Editor Before Harry D’Ercole reopened Enrico’s Italian Dining in Frankfort at its new location this May, the man who spent decades working at his family’s restaurant business found himself in unfamiliar territory — on an extended vacation. After working at the original Enrico’s from its inception in 1974 until its closing in 2012, when the D’Ercole family agreed to sell the restaurant and the land it sat on to make way for a Mariano’s grocery store, D’Ercole had a respite that ended up lasting several years. While he admits the time off was relaxing, he said he spent much of it consistently searching for the right spot to reopen Enrico’s. “I thought it would be an easy task,” D’Ercole said of finding where to go in Frankfort. “It turned into a terrible task.” D’Ercole said a number of deals fell through “for one reason or another” until the right one came about, with the carryout at the current spot opening shortly before the dining room did in late April. In the months since, D’Ercole said the response has been “very, very positive,” and while they are still adjusting to the new surroundings, the management and staff have been “honored” by the good feedback. “Getting a restaurant up and running and trying to meet that expectation is a challenge,” D’Ercole said. “Fortunately, we had 38 years’ experience behind us.” The Pork Tenderloin Madeira ($18.95) is a fixture on the specials menu, with pork tenderloin medallions sautéed with fresh mushrooms and Madeira wine served over sautéed spinach. Utilizing that know-how, D’Ercole and his staff quickly began serving up dishes the restaurant had become known for among locals, including Enrico’s Famous Minestrone Soup ($4.50 by the bowl, $9.95 for one quart plus garlic bread), which is made with 17 vegetable ingredients, according to the owner. “It’s all-natural ingredients, so you know there’s no preservatives in it,” D’Ercole said. “The soup is made fresh here daily, and we sell a lot of soup because it’s so good. That was one of the things I think people were really waiting for when we reopened was to get some soup. It has kale, three different kinds of beans, corn, zucchini, yellow squash, onions and more.” For those looking for more than soup, D’Ercole pointed to The Railroad Tie ($7.95), another inspiration from the original restaurant — which had a boxcar and caboose — and is made with a half pound of ground round on toasted garlic bread and topped with lettuce, tomato, grilled onions, ketchup and mustard. “It’s kind of a long steak burger,” D’Ercole said. Of course, no Italian restaurant would be complete Enrico’s Italian Dining 20535 S.

Dinners on the Enrico’s menu come with warm garlic bread and soup or salad. One of D’Ercole’s favorites there is the Chicken Florence ($16.95), a boneless chicken breast grilled and topped with fresh mushrooms and mozzarella over a bed of spinach. The key, however, to Enrico’s and its push to keep offering new things is its specials menu, according Please see DISH, 26 The Baked Mostaccioli ($11.95) is an Enrico’s tradition that consists of mostaccioli tossed with Parmesan cheese and covered with a meat sauce before being smothered with mozzarella and baked to a hot and gooey finish. photos by thomas Czaja/22nd Century Media 50% OFF select hunting camo SEPT 28 THROUGH OCT 9 SHIRTS JACKETS PANTS BIBS In-Store Only.
