Lolita Restaurant Review

: For the tenth anniversary of their modern Mexican restaurant, partners Valerie Safran and Marcie Turney decided to completely revamp the menu, renovate the space and replace its BYOB approach with a full bar. The menu now offers their nontraditional spin on Mexican street food, including multiple versions of house-made guacamole; tacos filled with pork, fried chicken or fish tikka masala; and entrées like carne asada. Pair the offerings with a flight of tequila; a classic margarita or specialty versions in flavors like rhubarb-hibiscus or cucumber-jalapeño; or a house cocktail, such as the Paloma Violeta, a sweet and punchy blend of tequila, grapefruit juice, prickly pear sorbet and agave.
