The Lolo Menu Revealed

Christine Kesler, 9/26/07

Everyone from Chowhound to Yelp has been wondering what exactly the Mission's newest restaurant, Lolo, is all about. Are there new owners involved? Is it a Turkish place? Is it Nuevo Latino? What are the prices like?

Earlier this week, Ms. Tablehopper shared a run-down of the owners:

Lolo is the nickname of owner Lorena Zerpuche, who owns the restaurant with her husband, Jorge Martinez, and their biz partner, Merdol Erkal, who is Turkish. Lorena and Jorge usually live in Guadalajara, where they have two other restaurants, I Latina and Anita lI ... Lorena, who designs restaurants and furnishings, designed Lolo's space, and is inspired by the styles and colors found in smaller cities in Mexico.
Ah, but what about about the menu, you ask? We've got it in its slightly-pretentious entirety, right this way.
