So Lola is getting a three-day facelift. Over the seven years that Lola has been in one of the original Olinger mortuary buildings, "There hasn't been a lot of thought to the big picture," Fader says, so they're doing that thinking now. "Lola is at a point in her maturity that she has to stay relevant," he adds. "I want to go in and have a little different feel, a little more excitement.
Lola is getting a new floor, new red tile in the open kitchen, new paint, new art by photographer Larry Laszlo. Diners should notice that it's "a little tighter, a little sexier," Fader notes.
After the interior changes are made and Lola has reopened, Fader will also get to work on the menu, "to push the food in the same direction." Watch for those changes in the next few weeks.
