Lola’s bartenders are happy to whip together any one of their more than 50 different martinis, but they smile a bit bigger when they’re asked to make the concoction they invented: the apple martini. Their pride has caught the attention of various press outlets—including LA Weekly and Vogue— and spills over onto the menu, where martini-pairing suggestions accompany each plate of pasta, seafood, and signature mac ‘n’ cheese.
