Little Red Wasp opened last week in downtown Fort Worth and we couldn't wait to try it! The latest venture from the owners of the iconic Grace has been creating buzz for weeks, teasing us with photos and menu postings.

The minute I entered Pacific Table I fell in love with the space and feel of this new seafood spot. All the hallmarks of a trendy restaurant were there-large bar in the center, sleek comfy booths, open "buzzy" kitchen and a separate sushi/oyster bar.

Enchiladas Ole-a Yummy Surprise!

Walking up to this eatery tucked into an unassuming strip center, we had no idea what to expect. We knew Enchiladas Ole was garnering lots of local diner and critic raves so we wanted to see for ourselves what this new gem was all about. As we walk into the restaurant, a cheery welcome resounds from a greeter (who would also be our waiter) and leads us to our table. Enchiladas Ole is a small eatery that serves around 40 and is simple, super clean and comfy. We of course started out with the obligatory Chips and Salsa. Fresh crisp chips and a nice, piquante sauce to dip them in.

It was really hard to decide what to order since every enchilada on the menu sounded delicious! One dish we opted for was a new entree they just started serving that day- Street Style Verde Brisket Enchiladas topped with cilantro, lime and a touch of pineapple. Sweet and tasty!

We could not resist trying one of the Texican Enchiladas, filled with smoked brisket and topped with a savory sauce made with San Antonio ancho chiles. Mellow, creamy and one of the most popular dishes on the menu. Next up were the Enmoladas- an enchilada filled with smoked tumeric and curry chicken and smothered with poblano mole sauce. This was definitely the crown jewel of the menu! Every bite was followed by "mmm".

Honestly, these are some of the best if not the best enchiladas we have ever had! Mary Perez, the owner/chef comes from Spanish and Mexican lineage and combines the best of both cuisines, getting much of the seasonings and spices from Spain. The chicken and brisket are smoked on site and there is no lard used in any of the preparations-just pure olive oil. The rice and beans were superb-light and flavorful.

This eatery embodies everything we hold near and dear on LocalSugar-fantastic food, welcoming environment and an attentive owner. As we left Enchiladas Ole we agreed, "a STAR is born".
