An Open Letter to Lola Pokorny
The following video is lamer than lame (but also, in its own way, sort of charming).
However, we at ELV assure you it is no lamer than your gummy, gloppy, cornstarch-y, one note, shrimp etouffee, served over poorly cooked rice.
Please watch it, take notes, buy a Paul Prudhomme cookbook, and start doing justice to this bayou classic.
Because, next to you, no one wants Lola’s to be a success more than we do. But ELV fears that if your food doesn’t improve, you’ll soon go the way of the last two operators in this Holsum Lofts space.
And then we would be sad. As would all of downtown Vegas.
PS: Your jambalaya could use a serious upgrade too.
