A word about NoRTH: I’m not sure why Fox Restaurant Concepts messed with the name. First it was NoRTH. Then it changed to North Fattoria which means farm but some of us couldn’t get past the “fat,” and now it’s North Italia but to me it will always simply be NoRTH, and it’s my most favorite place to eat at La Encantada.
My secret passion is watching that Food Network show called Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. Oh, how I envy Guy Fieri (but also wonder how much of it is staged?) and his flashy convertible driving through town.
