Saturday night we strolled up Congress Street to one of the East Ends many adorable restaurants. We had our eye on Bar Lola since moving to this side of town in October. The restaurant looked particularly picturesque with the first dusting of snow sticking to the ground.
tried to make a reservation earlier that evening but there were none
available at the time we were looking for (we were trying to make it to a
9:30 movie). We decided to take our chances by just walking in. As luck
would have it there were two seats at the bar available when we
arrived. If you don't mind sitting at the bar this is a great way to get
into a restaurant otherwise booked!
drink menu looked really good and unique and I had a hard time
choosing! The Man-friend ordered a bourbon concoction with a rock candy
A ginger margarita for me :)
We decided to share a couple appetizers which were small three or four
bite dishes of great flavor. We tried the beet cured salmon, pimento
cheese and meatballs for him.
Man-friend got the pork for his entree which he really liked. I opted
for the vegetarian item that tasted good but did not photograph well :)
Time to scurry back home in the cold to grab the car and make it to the
movie! We caught the new Bond movie. I have to admit I have never seen
one and actually sort of enjoyed it :) Shhh, don't tell!
