What do you get when a Tuscan chef marries a Mexican one? In the case of Matilda, a quirky Alphabet City restaurant, you get wood-burning-oven-baked focaccia with your guacamole, mozzarella and  epazote in your quesadilla, and filet mignon alla Fiorentina in your tacos. Those fusion dishes and more, like the lasagna de tortillas and zucchini basil soup, are the Tusc-Mex handiwork of Maristella Innocenti and Esteban Molina, who met cooking at I Coppi. The chocolate-brown, pink-trimmed restaurant, more sleek than rustic, is named for the couple’s 3-year-old daughter, who happens to be the inspiration for her parents’ all-natural gelati and sorbetti, made with organic milk and sweetened with honey collected by a friend.
