LoLa 42 was inspired from LoLa 41, their sister restaurant located on the gorgeous Nantucket Island. LoLa stands for “longitude latitude” and the numbers 41 and 42 represents the parallel that each restaurant resides on. All LoLa restaurants are influenced by the countries and regions that these parallels cross through – everything from the décor inside the restaurants to the atmosphere to their outstanding menus and bar items.
In LoLa 42, check out the sushi and cocktail bar’s embedded coins from many of the countries that are alongside the 42nd parallel. Not only is the inspiration and history of LoLa 42 amazingly unique, but it is also located in one of the most gorgeous areas of Boston – right in the Seaport! Whether you are looking to go out for a special occasion, a date night, or a fun night out with family and friends, you will not be disappointed with LoLa 42!
