Lisa Marie, Toronto, ON

A couple weeks ago at an event at Michael's on Simcoe, Gord and I met and had a nice chat with Sarah, the manager of Lisa Marie (Queen Street W/Tecumseh).

We walked home after seeing Gravity (in 3D ... it was good!) and stopped in to check out Lisa Marie (it was on our way home).

We sat at the bar and chatted with Andrew and Alla.

Just craft beer on tap, which is nice to see
I ordered Gertz ... it was yummy!

The restaurant opened in April 2013 by Fidel Gastro, which started out as a food truck and expanded from there.  There is an interesting selection of food.

Andrew gave us a sample of candied bacon ... yum!

The restaurant used to be a Polish deli.  If you go towards the back, it still has that same old charm with lots of yummy things you can buy and take home.

We were going to buy some beer-yaki chicken to take home to cook for supper tonight but apparently the bags weren't sealed properly.  To compensate, Andrew gave us bottle of meat sugo to try ... looks good!

On the way to the bathrooms downstairs, you are encouraged to sign the wall ... so I did.

I liked Lisa Marie ... it's comfy and cozy and the staff is really friendly.  The food on the menu and in the deli section look delicious and I'd love to take home their beer-yaki chicken and buffalo chicken.

We'll be back!

This spot looks great. I liked Gravity too! :)

I think I saw some segment on Fidel Gastro last month and the owner mentioned something about opening up a restaurant. Very cool! Although.... $5 bar rail isn't exactly something to brag about. Isn't that the going rate for shots?
