Being properly prepared saves students from flunking exams, pianists from plucking erroneous notes in public, and steaks from ending up as dog Frisbees. Chomp down on carefully crafted dishes with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of American fare and drinks at Lola's in West Hollywood.
Lola's menu is stocked with creative dishes and a bevy of throat-cleansing martinis. Pair the popular apple martini with a baked artichoke layered in phyllo pastry ($11) or succumb to the gravitational pull of the melty gourmet grilled cheese, with dutch havarti, sharp cheddar, and tomato soup ($12). Entrees include a grilled pork chop supplemented with pancetta-sage gravy ($19), angel-hair pasta with lobster ($21), and a vegetarian-friendly lasagna accompanied by a heaping helping of parmesan-garlic bread ($14). Peanut butter and jelly, the preferred packed lunch of children and most Fortune 500 CEOs, gets a major dessert makeover with Lola's PB&J cheesecake and strawberry coulis ($8).
During the past 10 years, Lola's has pieced together a beautiful collage of praiseworthy press. Overstuffed leopard-print couches adorn the interior and the architecturally modern exterior is accented with subdued lighting that sets the mood for a romantic evening or a casual conversation about subdued lighting.
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. Once encore chants finally subside, eaters can settle on the kitchen’s cocoa-centric desserts, such as flourless chocolate cake and chocolate bread pudding.
