Having been raised in St. Louis, it really isn’t surprising that Barbie has always had a passion for Italian cuisine. What is surprising is that she would open an Italian restaurant. After all, being trained in Cardiology is far removed from owning and operating a successful restaurant. But being the ever optimistic person that she is, Barbie opened Lomonte’s in 1986. Those early years were tough, but proved to be valuable in building a successful business that is still going strong today. Her passion for traditional Italian fare is evident from the home-cooked delights to her “to-die-for” sauces.
