Orland Park goes mad for plaid Jackie OBoyle Orland Park Resident Continuing my quest to bring a little more country to the OP, let’s talk plaid. Plaid typically triggers feelings of preppy school girl. Well, you can kiss those uniforms goodbye. Plaid’s gone country. The plaid button down has taken on a life of its own. Whether you’re a country fan or not, this trend can outfit every body. It’s fashionable, hip and so easy! Here’s how to wear it. Pick your favorite plaid. This part is fun. Plaid speaks to each of us in different ways. When presented with three different plaid options, the eye is quickly and magically drawn to one. That’s the one for you. Now wear with ease. Over a tank or tee, buttoned halfway up, tied in a knot at the waist, or just left wide open. Jeans required. It’s that simple. I like mine over a cute tee with a clever tag line. Guys do plaid, too, half buttoned or open and untucked. Think Blake Shelton. You just might look that cool. Well, keep telling yourself that anyway. Grab some plaid and some Tennessee whiskey ... Orland’s going a little bit country! The opinions of this column are that of the writer. They do not necessarily reflect those of The Orland Park Prairie.

The specials menu will feature items — like the Pork Tenderloin Madeira ($18.95) — for several weeks, then will switch out and reintroduce those items about six weeks later. “We have a lot of repeat customers, some folks that dine with us even two or three times a week, so we like to create new things to keep the people who come often interested,” D’Ercole said. “Plus, it’s fun to create new food and new dishes.” Prior to the innovation of new plates and the new restaurant opening, D’Ercole had the opportunity to travel to Lucca, located in the Tuscany region of Italy, where his father, Harry D’Ercole, Sr., was born. Joined by 13 cousins, he spent two weeks abroad. During that time, D’Ercole took a variety of photographs which now adorn the walls of Enrico’s, further adding to the atmosphere. Near the bar rests an old photograph of D’Ercole’s late father and his late mother, Shirley. When asked what his father would have thought of the revamped Enrico’s, D’Ercole smiled. “I think my dad would have loved it because there’s a bar,” he said with a laugh. “If you look at that picture, he’s smiling there with his scotch and cigarette in his hand. “My dad was the best ambassador we ever had.” D’Ercole shares the love of talking to people at the restaurant his father had and said he is still flooded with memories and nostalgia while making the daily rounds. He also is passionate about cooking — he has a particular interest in baking and dessert, making all the restaurant’s tiramisu — and ensures the family component remains in place. Family means his brother, Bob, works as the butcher and cuts all the steaks, and makes the sausage and other meat items for the sauces, soup and more in an effort to control the quality of the product. His niece works up front, his sister-in-law helps when needed and his staff who worked many years at the original Enrico’s has largely returned. Even the story on the restaurant’s name has a family tie that patrons might not realize. D’Ercole’s father came to the U.S. at age 5. Enrico, which means Henry in Italian, was his father’s first name. But D’Ercole’s grandmother did not like the name Henry, so she officially renamed her son Harry, which was then inevitably passed on to her grandson, too. “My birth certificate actually says Enrico, which is technically Henry,” D’Ercole said. “But my grandmother decided we would be Harry.” To comment, visit OP Prairie.com.
