Lona offers Ft. Lauderdale eclectic, soulful Mexican cooking from Chef Pablo Salas in a chic, yet funky environment. Complete with a gorgeous indoor/outdoor bar, casually elegant interior dining room, a special tequila tasting room and multiple private dining spaces, Lona is the perfect spot for any occasion. Lona – which translates to “canvas” from Spanish – serves lunch and dinner daily with a sister space, nicknamed Tinta (Spanish for “ink”), handling breakfast. A tattoo devotee, Salas’ body is a living canvas and the restaurant, a clean slate, the canvas, for his culinary creations.
No great Mexican restaurant is complete without an equally great bar. With seating both indoor and outdoor, the bar offers a special menu of snacks, small plates and tacos as well as a selection of agave-centric craft cocktails, freshly-made margaritas (no premade mixes here!), house-made sangrias, Micheladas (perfect for the beachfront vibe) and, for true tequila worshipers, agave flights.
Lona brings something truly unique to the region: quality service, cuisine and setting of a high-end restaurant with the laid-back fun, approachability of a casual waterfront Mexican cantina. Warm earth tones, natural wood tables and chairs, and Santa Fe-style planters sprouting lush foliage and cacti evoke an inviting and lively atmosphere. The décor and design deliver an ambiance equal parts chic beachside cantina and homey hacienda.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
