Red Lulu Cocina & Tequila Bar
One might leave Red Lulu Cocina & Tequila Bar, which was named this year's best new restaurant north of Boston by Boston Magazine, with some sense of the broad scope of Mexican cuisine, geography, and culture. That epiphany might come from the selection of 180 tequilas, which slip down in shots, release bell peals of clicking ice in glasses, or blend with lime in thick margaritas rimmed with salt. The tantalizing menu also parades traditional Mexican ingredients, though they are tangled into surprising configurations.
Red chandeliers glow, bringing to life the colors of chipotle peppers on plates at plush black booth seating, all beneath red wallpaper. In the tequila lounge, ample couches create a circle around red, candlelit tables for resting a glass of sangria or a mojito muddled with strawberries or cucumber. A row of inset shadowboxes displays the colorful lucha libre masks typically used in overblown battles and attempts to go out in public without being recognized as Kevin Bacon.

“Food was fun and good...make sure wait staff reads back order..we ended up with dish we hadn't asked for. Also while waitress was adorable and attentive...there were LARGE amounts of time that she disappeared and when food was not ready when told it would be right out...never checked back with us. It took too long there..the beginning was great and got worse as the night went on...we just wanted to go home but the dessert too took about 20-25 minutes to come out and it wasn't even that crowded. Perhaps it's best for people who want to drink a lot and want to spend 3 hours at a restaurant...we, however are not drinkers so we were there for way too long.”
“Thanks for a great Dinner we will be back and good luck in the new location this winter.”
