Cheap Eats: Lolita Cocina & Tequila Bar

MIAMI BEACH (CBS4) – Calling South Beach’s newest Mexican restaurant “Lolita Cocina and Tequila Bar” sexy and edgy might sound a bit strange, but looking around the newly renovated space off 1st Street and Collins Avenue with red velvet walls, glass chandeliers and rustic bar you get  a certain vibe.

“Lolita was originally conceived to be a burlesque or bordello Mexican spirit and we wanted to take street food of Mexico but keep it simple,” said owner Jody Pennette.

It’s not your typical Mexican eatery; serenading Mariachi Bands are not on the menu. Lolita Cocina and Tequila Bar is the third take on a concept started in Boston and Connecticut.

As for cost, customers can pretty much determine their final check by the bountiful offerings and price ranges in the menu

“You can come out and get a couple of taquitos and tacos and come out light and then we also have tequila at $100 a shot,” said Pennette.

Lolita Cucina and Tequila Bar is opened 7 days a week.

    I’d rather go to Chipotle and sneak a shot of my Jose Cuervo.
