Lola Deux – A Review
Lola restaurant takes the food truck craze to CovingtonBy 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.
