The Poke Nachos are some of the best we have ever tried…And we have tried them everywhere. Every dish is on point wether you order sushi or not. Highlights are The Shrimp Tempura, Wagyu Tartare Crispy Rice The Grilled Salmon Lo Mein & The Lola Bolognese. Lola Hospitality has similar concepts in Nantucket, Palm Beach & Naples. They have the more casual Lola Burger also in The Boston Seaport.
