We were given the name Lola's from people who live in this part of Florida. From the moment we located the restaurant, we felt this place would not disappoint. The large windows that look out onto Harrison immediately convey the atmosphere and food that we enjoy. Although there is a relaxed air to Lola's, you intuit that nothing is relaxed about ensuring dining that is delicious and contemporary. We're most taken with GREENS & THINGS. My husband orders a spinach salad that is described as"
Swank Farms Arrowhead Spinach, Cinnamon Dusted Granny Smith Apples, Applewood Smoked Bacon, Toasted Almonds, Apple Cider-Honey Vinaigrette Topped with a Crispy Poached Egg." I have the ROASTED BEET SALAD with Oven Roasted Red Beets, Frisee, Maytag Blue Cheese, Red Wine Poached Pears, Candied Pecans, Champagne Vinaigrette. Both salads are sensational and live up to their particularized descriptions. It is rare that the salads taste so fresh that you would be happy for the dinner to stop there so you can continue to be reminded of how good some ingredients can be. For mains, for him, it's COCA COLA BBQ BEEF RIBS with beef ribs, buttermilk onion rings and herb creamed corn. My husband says he actually prefers pork ribs and although tasty, the corn does not add to the meal. I have GRILLED RAINBOW TROUT on
wild arugula, cherry tomatoes with roasted shallots in a lemon-basil vinaigrette. Once again, it is the fresh greens that really turn on my tastebuds. The fish is very good but the greens have been outstanding. The side of sweet potato fries likewise is sweet and I cannot stop eating them. We notice, there are other mainstays no the menu: such as
FILET MIGNON and SALMON. We have key lime pie for desert. The crust is vanilla wafers and it is delicious, not too tart and not too sweet. The chef has balanced the flavours perfectly so that the pie is refreshingly delicious. We enjoy Lola's and would make it our regular haunt if we lived in Hollywood Florida.
