Enso held a contest to come up with the name for the restaurant. Upon seeing the space, with its unique circular construction, the winning entrant came up with “Enso,” which means circle in Japan. It also stands for the moment when the mind frees itself for the body and spirit to become creative. Profound stuff for a sushi bar.
Enso’s dome shape has a tendency to bounce sound around the space. When the restaurant first opened, guests found they could clearly hear what diners were saying on the opposite side of the room. So Enso implemented a music system to help break that up a bit and minimize unintentional eavesdropping.
