Fine, made-from-scratch fare from chefs Keith and Nealy Frentz. Gourmet soups, salads, sandwiches and daily specials for lunch weekdays; upscale Louisiana-inspired menu for dinner, served Friday and Saturday. Full bar. The building that houses LOLA is the city's' historic train depot, the kitchen an actual train caboose.
Since its opening in January 2006, Nealy and Keith have racked up some big awards and recognition. In 2009 they were both awarded the "Chefs to Watch" from Louisiana Cookin' magazine. The magazine also placed them among Louisana's Best Small Town Chefs. Nealy appeared on the Food Network's "Chopped," in 2013, coming in as runner up in the competition. Both she and Keith were appeared in an episode of the Food Channel's "Eat St." in February 2015. In 2012, the cuople competed in the Louisiana Seafood Cook off, sponsored by the Louisiana Seafood & Marketing Board, and won first place. With that title they were given the chance to compete in the Great American Seafood Cook-off, to represent the state of Louisiana against 15 other states, and placed 2nd.
Look for the Lola Deux food truck at community events, Covington Farmers Market, Pontchartrain Vineyards and more.
