Lola Gaspar: Spend Your Afternoon Siesta at This Latin American Tavern

March 24, 2015 3:11 pm

Lola Gaspar channels the easy lifestyle of Latin America through its eclectic menu, elaborately decorated interior, and afternoon siesta offerings, which are perfect for guests who want to call off the workday a little early. The dining room is small and romantic, featuring rustic chandeliers and a very quaint, cozy seating area.

Warm chips and grilled calamari make flavorful appetizers, and the tacos are some of the most popular menu items. Lola Gaspar also serves heartier entrees, like skirt steak or spicy carnitas, and regulars rave about the perfectly crispy French fries. The weekday siesta specials include discounted snack plates and cocktails from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., just like they do in Latin countries. Whether you stop by for dinner or to spend the afternoon on the outdoor patio, Lola Gaspar is a welcome respite from the daily hustle and bustle.

Lola Gaspar is open 11:30 a.m. to midnight on weekdays. The hours change on weekends, so be sure to check before planning a visit.
