Fodor's Expert Review Lisa Marie
Beloved food truck Fidel Gastro's has brought creative street food to Queen West, combining Asian street vendor dishes with classic Italian cuisine. Now owner Matthew Basile has given his food a permanent home with his restaurant, Lisa Marie. The menu features small plates such as the delicious deep-fried pizza topped with hoison sauce and duck breast that's been smoked for 12 hours; the divine mozzarella and bone marrow sandwich with housemade pineapple-chili ketchup; and Alabama tailgaters (grass-fed beef carpaccio wrapped in smoked bacon) that will have you shouting olé! And the signature Elvis in a Jar dessert—layers of peanut butter mascarpone, rum-soaked brioche French toast, boozy maple syrup, and caramelized bacon—would make the King of Rock swoon.
