At Lolita Cocina and Tequila Point, even the bathrooms are Instagram-worthy. Ornate tin panels bookend a pair of long trough sinks, joined by the mirrors that divide them. The sinks sit right between the entrance to the bathrooms. Both the "Senoritas" and "Senors" entrances are splashed with striking works of art depicting a woman and a man, respectively, wearing full faces of Dia de Los Muertos makeup. When a restaurant owner puts this much thought into bathroom design, you can expect the same flair in the dining room and on the menu—see the stained glass windows behind the bar.
Lolita Cocina and Tequila Point debuted its second location in Fort Point about six weeks ago after meeting major success at its original Back Bay location. This eatery offers the same innovative Mexican fare and colorful, creative cocktails as its predecessor. Pick a pour from the lengthy list of tequilas and wines or order a glass of the red sangria to enjoy as you pore over the menu. Regulars highly recommend the street tacos, which come stuffed with everything from blackened mahi-mahi to spicy brussels sprouts, and the grilled street corn with chili-lime salt.
