Lola 55

Operating in the IDEA1 mixed-use commercial and residential building on the corner of 13th and F in East Village, LOLA 55 marries Chef Drew Bent’s (and business partner Frank Vizcarra’s) love for woodfire cooking with San Diego tacos. “Similar to Sonorense-style cooking, where mesquite is commonly used to cook and season food, we are using a Santa Maria wood grill to add that little bit of ‘what’s missing,’” says Bent, who was adopted by Mexican neighbors as a kid in Linda Vista, raised in Guadalajara, and went on to study under Chefs Luis and Ricardo Arellano at Criollo in Oaxaca. “We are sourcing the best ingredients we can and using traditional and modern techniques to create a cuisine that’s rich in flavor, but light on the belly.”
