King of Seafood

COVINGTON, LA— WDSU New Orleans.

Excerpt From WGNO, The King of Louisiana Seafood.

Keith and Nealy Frentz are not your average couple. The two own Lola Restaurant in Covington, plus the two are chefs; cooking pretty much round the clock together.

“I can’t think of it any other way,” says Nealy, “I can’t imagine not working with Keith. it makes life fun!”

Last weekend Keith was crowned King of Louisiana Seafood  after winning the Louisiana Seafood Cook-Off presented by the  Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board. It’s not an easy title to conquer, and like most smart partners he’s attributing his success to his other half.

“I share the crown with Nealy, so it’s a King and Queen thing. It’s kind of corny, but she helps just as much as I did,” insists Keith.

The two met nine years ago while working at the kitchen inside Brennan’s. A few years later Read More

Lola Deux – A Review

Lola restaurant takes the food truck craze to Covington

By Mark Lorando, The Times-Picayune

Nealy Crawford-Frentz and Keith Frentz have officially driven the food truck craze to the north shore.

The chef-owners of Lola, the charming “Louisiana contemporary cuisine” restaurant that has operated out of an old train caboose on New Hampshire Street since 2006, is now making regular rounds in downtown Covington in a bright red mobile kitchen dubbed Lola deux.

Lola deux parked Saturday morning at the Covington Farmers Market, where customers were lined up at 10:30 a.m. for free samples of a melt-in-your-mouth fried green tomato BLT and a light remoulade sauce. The rest of the menu: blackened redfish tacos with slaw ($7), a New Hampshire sandwich (ham, apricot preserve and brie, $6), and truffle parmesan fries ($3).

Crawford-Frentz said the truck will be parked every Thursday at Rockin’ the Rails, the Covington Trailhead concert series just down the street from the restaurant, every Thursday from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays from 10:30 p.m. (an hour after the restaurant closes) to 1:30 a.m., they’ll hit hot spots in downtown Covington.

Diners can track the truck’s nightly locations via the restaurant’s Facebook and Twitter accounts.
