Don't get me wrong it was nice to get out of the cold for a couple days but whenever I need to travel its hard to catch back up. This week we made a couple changes to the menu at Lola and have been jamming with restaurant week. Its great to see so many people downtown and supporting the restaurants. Cleveland really does have a great downtown and I love to see the people get out of the burbs and having a good time.
To our current menu we added a hanker-chief pasta with red wine, mushrooms and rapini, a roasted chicken with white sausage, lentils, mustard and bacon and a rib eye with a radish salad and salsa verde. Im really happy with the changes and as usual Powder and the entire kitchen staff are doing a great job. Its gives the menu a little more range in price and some more variety which is always good.
We will also be starting a happy hour at Lola that will be a continuation of restaurant week. We will offer a 3 course tasting for 30 dollars with choices within each category . It will run from 5-630 Mon-Fri. It should be alot of fun. Fortunately we haven't yet felt the economic downturn but Im excited to make Lola more accessible to people who might want to give it a try for a little less cash.
Live to cook, MS
