Lola’s Backdoor Cantina Popping-Up in The Brewery District
Front Street Bar & Grille opened on February 19th in the former Frezno Bar & Grille location, 460 South Front Street. The casual restaurant, owned by Kevin and Lori Ames, has attracted the lunch and happy hour crowds especially, thanks to the combination of good grub and decent prices.
This May, the pair will launch a pop-up restaurant on the back patio of Front Street Bar & Grille. Lola’s Backdoor Cantina is billed as a mod-Mex restaurant, set to serve the popular and familiar flavors of Mexican cuisine rehyped and reimagined.
Guests will have a 10-item menu from which to order, with dishes such as Smoked Trout Guacamole. In addition, as the opening of Lola’s Backdoor Cantina will coincide with Cinco de Mayo on Monday, May 5th, there will also be flights of tequila available and Dos Equis on tap.
The patio will be adorned with overhead white lights, market umbrellas, and tiki lamps. The space, which will be able to accommodate 60 guests, will have the same hours as Front Street Bar & Grille, which opens daily at 11am.
The launch of Lola’s Backdoor Cantina coincides with the introduction of COTA’s Downtown Circulator line, a free service running from East Third Avenue in the Short North to West Sycamore Street in the Brewery District, making it that much easier for customers to get to Lola’s hassle-free.
