Lola planted its flag in the Lower Highlands neighborhood in 2007 and, in the time since, it has emerged as one of the best places for a meal or just a margarita with a city view. Start off with guacamole, prepared fresh table-side, and then take your pick of one of the delectable specialties—lobster enchiladas, seared sea bass, and caldo de mariscos, a stew with shrimp, crab, mussels, and more. Landlubbing tastes will appreciate pork, beef, and vegetarian options. But it's the cocktails that make the place shine, with seven margaritas and unique drinks like the Fuego Verde—yes, green fire—with tequila, muddled jalapenos, and fresh lime.
