Lola Rose is known for its unique decor, but it’s the Mediterranean dishes made by co-owner and Chef Marco Olivares that has brought the restaurant in full circle.

“Me and my wife traveled through the Mediterranean when we were younger. So, we would spend a lot of time in Spain and Italy and France, and we just fell in love with the culture and the style of food,” Olivares said.

Sanchez says they wanted to marry Mediterranean and cocktails together when he and Olivares began to explore their options.

“Our minds kind of clash together, it was a lot of great first sessions just kind of spit balling ideas and kind of going through a lot of things and his expertise is phenomenal and I just couldn’t ask for a better partner.” said Sanchez.

Offering cocktails such as their number one seller, a coconut water and citrus cordial called “Noche in Acapulco”.

The restaurant also offers brunch on the weekends from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and dinner Tuesday through Saturday 5 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.
