Keith was born and raised in Covington, Louisiana and Nealy was born and raised in Southern California, then moved to Biloxi, Mississippi. Those dreams came true when they opened to doors of LOLA in Covington, Louisiana in January of 2006. Prior to the opening restaurant they both held Sous chef positions at world famous Brennan’s Restaurant on Royal Street in New Orleans. There, they each learned the ins and outs of fine dining kitchen culture and interaction with a variety of people. It was not until hurricane Katrina came when their reality of restaurant ownership would come true. They evacuated to Covington and one year later LOLA was born. Nealy was 23 and Keith 28.
Keith and Nealy both graduated from the prestigious Johnson & Wales University with degrees in culinary arts which gave them the knowledge and fundamentals of understanding the kitchen. Together with family, schooling and kitchen life at Brennan’s has helped sculpt LOLA into what it is today. One of the best restaurants on the Northshore. They are always looking for room to grow and better the community. LOLA supports the farmers of the Covington farmers market as well as local seafood suppliers. We love to keep it LOCAL at LOLA.
