  • Sweet Harmonie

      There’s plenty more to commend Lola’s, the jazzy, comfortably friendly bright spot just inside the Gratiot gateway to Harmonie Park. Contrasting red, blue and bittersweet chocolate walls are enlivened with huge canvasses by local artist Gigi Bolden. The wings are not to be missed; they are meaty and juicy, carrying a thin coating of just enough spice to show through the ingeniously complementary sweet-hot sauces drizzled on the plate. And there are sturdier entrées — such as char-grilled rib-eye steak with the Argentine green herbal sauce chimichurri; sautéed salmon crusted with cornmeal and green chiles; and Catalan seafood stew, Jones’ interpretation of the Spanish take on bouillabaisse, with saffron-tickled shellfish, squid and fish — that promise a fine dinner.

  • Buffett, not buffet

      Taking its name, of course, from the Jimmy Buffett munchies anthem, the place is suitably decked out in mass-produced tropical fish art, palm-thatched trellises, seashells and regulation tiki bar stuff. They concoct all manner of fun boat drinks using Hershey’s syrup, lots of flavored vodkas, rums and sticky liqueurs, garnished with baby bananas, pineapple and other fruit sculpted into freaky creatures, including a parrot wearing Ray Bans. As for the food, you can find its like in most cookie-cutter chain links.
