what to expect … when expecting brunch at Lisa Marie

I’ve said this a thousand times … I’m really not a breakfast or brunch person. Caffeinate me and i’m good to go. And then, my partner Matt Basile (and the wonderful FG team), decided to open what would be our biggest endeavor together to date: Lisa Marie.

Lisa Marie is the brainchild and latest addition to the FG business offering street food inspired cicchetti items and sharing plates… and as of this weekend – brunch! I was slightly reluctant at the thought of brunch as I didn’t care much for another boring version of eggs benny or french toast. For those of you who know Matt, know that nothing he creates is ordinary. If there is a way to make something you’ve never eaten before, he’ll do it. When the idea of brunch was brought up, I had one condition and one condition only. Create a brunch menu that would really be creative and unique for this city. Here’s a sample of what he came up with…

Double Pancake Pork Burger

This heavy hitter is a brunch monstrosity – big, meaty yummieness. Two stacked 4oz pork burger patties with pancake buns topped with lettuce, cheese, tomato and served with a side of maple syrup. And if that wasn’t enough, it comes with your choice of mixed green salad, duck fat homefries or pad thai fries.

Sweet and Sour Pork Fries

Fries tossed in homemade sweet and sour sauce and topped with cilantro bahn mi slaw, pork belly and a fried egg.

For a lighter option – Open-faced smoke fish club

Daily smoked fish, in house smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato, red onion, lemon ricotta cream cheese, capers and green onions. Again with the side of mixed green salad, duck fat home fries or pad thai fries.

Other brunch items include The Peameal, eh? – braised peameal bacon, old cheddar, fried green tomatoes, caramelized onions and a fried egg, the Eggy, Sausage and Biscuits – double stacked open faced biscuit topped with sausage gravy, cheese and a fried egg and last but not least Fried Cornish Hen and Corn Bread Waffles- pretty self-explanatory.

and what’s brunch without a Lisa’s Sunset – vodka, cherry heering, st. germain, orange juice and lemonata. And coffee of course!

And if you really haven’t had enough of Lisa Marie, there’s always our Meat sweat Sundays featuring our in house smoke boards and 30+day dry aged cuts of NY Strip and rib-eyes. Come in, grab a drink and say hello!

Also our market is open all weekend long, so come and get all your BBQ grilling meats and sides!
