Fabian Chavez starts his mornings at Eno’s Pizza Tavern making the soup of the day with fresh local veggies and herbs. “Our recipes are simple,” says Chavez, Eno’s head chef a.k.a. Kitchen Boss. “You don’t have to throw in the whole kitchen sink to get a good product.” Although the charming Bishop Arts establishment is known for its pizzas, the soups sell out by the end of the day, especially during the winter months. Popular flavors include the tomato basil, chicken tortilla, mushroom and roasted bell pepper. Each is served with toasted bread. Chavez can’t reveal any of his secret ingredients except this one: “It’s the love we put into it.”
