THIS RESTAURANT IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED Lolita Restaurant Review

: THIS RESTAURANT IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED FOR RENOVATIONS This unassuming restaurant revises all your ideas about Mexican cuisine. Partners Valerie Safran and chef Marcie Turney, who have singlehandedly transformed the 13th Street landscape, serve Mexican fare with the touch of a contemporary American kitchen, using fresh, local ingredients. Bring your own tequila and they will provide freshly-squeezed juices (even watermelon). Dig into the guacamole, tamal with huitlacoche, and salmon cured in tequila and lime. Friendly to vegetarians, the kitchen can substitute three chile tofu or grilled portobello for any meat or seafood item. For dessert, try the chocolate caramel budin with pecans, coconut and cinnamon. Service is professional.
