Lolita Cocina is a Back Bay Mexican restaurant that kind of feels like a dungeon, if dungeons had margaritas and tacos instead of rats and a crazy old man who has been stuck in there ever since he made an obscene gesture at the queen 17 years ago. It’s both a restaurant and a loungy bar and it fills up quickly after work on the weekdays. The crispy cauliflower tacos are pretty good for a vegetarian option.
