After more than three months of trying to get customers to say Eñye, owners Bob and Jeanette Di Pasquantonio gave up and changed the restaurant’s name to Table 38.

The re-dubbed eatery at 330 W. State St. in Geneva offers some of its previous menu items, but also traditional American food, Bob Di Pasquantonio said.

“We changed the name because we couldn’t get people to pronounce the name, and we realized that people, in general, like to eat things they know,” Bob Di Pasquantonio said. “And they did not know plantains and rice and beans. They did not crave them during the week. So we brought in American food.”

The former name, Eñye, came from the Spanish alphabet, to signal its Latin American fare, he said. It featured cuisine from Peru, Columbia, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Argentina, Venezuela, Spain and a little bit of Mexico in a two- to three-week rotation.

Di Pasquantonio said about 60 percent of the previous menu was kept, and hamburgers, pot pies, fried chicken, meatloaf, steak and seafood were added.
