Lisa Marie is a restaurant/bar and my friend was meeting her friend here so she brought me along too! We didn’t have a reservation so there was a bit of a wait. Almost all their tables are high counters with bar stools. After almost an hour we got a table!
Everything on the brunch menu sounded delicious from the Double Pancake Pork Burger to the Fried Cornish Hen and Cornbread Waffles.
This was the Lamb Shank’n Hash with with sauteed red onions, peppers, potatoes and two sunny side up eggs on top. The dish arrived in a large pan and pretty much any braised meat is good! I only had a small bite of this.
Two of us ordered the Bacon Explosion Benedict which comes with your choice of Pad Thai Fries, Dijon and duck fat home fries or salad. I swear things with cool names always get me (e.g. nail polishes)! How can I resist something called the Bacon Explosion Benedict?
So it turned out that there wasn’t that much bacon on it and the bacon is actually used to wrap around a thin beef patty which sits on top of a brioche bun instead of an English muffin. It was like having a burger and eggs benny at the same time! Since they used a brioche bun, this was a super filling meal and I didn’t eat the other half of the bun.
The Pad Thai Fries are essentially fries tossed in something like a spicy buffalo BBQ sauce and topped with a few bean sprouts for decoration. The sauce coating the fries did make them soggy but I ate them anyway! Maybe they should give the sauce to you to mix with the fries on your own?
