This Center City restaurant serves contemporary Mexican cuisine and invites customers to BYOT — where the "T" stands for tequila. The space consists of exposed brick walls, an open kitchen, black-framed mirrors, and dark wooden furniture. Fresh-made margarita mixes include ingredients like strawberry puree and purple basil. As for food, there are Mexican standards (guacamole, carne asada) alongside more eclectic offerings like spice-rubbed pork chops with smoked bacon potatoes and hazelnut-crusted duck breast. Lolita doesn't accept credit cards or reservations.
