From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List
The <em>Godfather</em> references at this new pizzeria don’t stop with the name: Portraits of Marlon Brando line the walls of the small dining room. Amid the trendy bars and cafés of the hip Gemayzeh area, Corleone stands out for its consistently great food, from the wood-fired pizzas to the pastas and house-smoked charcuterie.
We loved: Corleone Special pizza, which changes seasonally but might feature Lebanese olives and spiced salami.
Insider tip: The place is packed at lunch and dinner, so prepare to wait—or arrive between 3 and 4 p.m.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
