Slow Food at Lola's: Mark Your Calendar

Slow Foods Glades to Coast, our local chapter of the global organization dedicated to spreading the word and supporting food grown in our own backyards, is planning yet another of its scrumptious dinners at Lola's in Hollywood. If you haven't attended these events, foodies, you are really missing the slow boat. Under the aegis of leader Diane Campion, not only has the food been marvelous but the company is a lot of fun: a bunch of witty, enlightened, and knowledgeable folks who not only can talk about clam farming and orange groves but know their history and geography and wine to boot. It ought to go without saying that four courses with hors d'oeuvres and drinks at this price ($59, including tax and tip!) is a steal. Check out the menu below, and call now to reserve.
