Lola Restaurant Review

: Although housed adjacent to a Belltown hotel, Lola bucks the blandness and mediocrity so often ascribed to the hotel restaurant genre. Paying homage to his wife and partner Jackie Cross’s Greek heritage, chef Tom Douglas highlights Pacific Northwest ingredients in Lola’s Greek-themed menu. Bring a group of friends and simply graze, starting with an assortment of spreads from roasted red pepper to smoky eggplant and minted feta, all served with fresh pita wedges. At lunch, try the ouzo-splashed kebabs, especially the lamb, chicken and prawn skewers paired with smashed potatoes. For a hearty dinner, order the juicy lamb burger with a side of chickpea fries, a whole roasted fish, braised rabbit with lemon and artichokes, or the fragrant cumin-spiced leg of lamb. Can’t decide? Go for the Lola Big Dinner, well worth its $50 price tag, and savor tastes from across the menu. Desserts rotate, but keep your fingers crossed for the goat cheese turnovers glistening with honey and mint. A full bar offers a plethora of libations, while the wine list is thoughtful and balanced, showcasing Pacific Northwest varietals. Service is gracious and informed, and its hotel proximity also makes it a prime breakfast destination.
