Photos: Lola reveals its new look after a fast facelift

Lola has been open for a decade -- three years in its original home on South Pearl Street (which is now becoming Tavern Platt Park), and almost seven in LoHi, where it was one of the first new restaurants to venture into what's now one of the hottest dining destinations in town. Last week, Lola closed for a few days for a quick facelift, which included new floors, a new paint job, new art and a general streamlining of the space. Next up? A revamp of the menu.

And remember: Tonight's special is the award-winning chicken and waffles.
