Anniversaries galore! Katsuya Brentwood turns 4; Lola's is 15; and Sol Cocina lights one candle

July 9, 2010 | 10:13 pm

Specials are in the air as three tasty restaurants mark another year gone by on their calendars.

Katsuya Brentwood: This eldest child of the venerable Japanese chain turns 4 on Monday. Diners can expect 15% off lunch and dinner if they mention the anniversary. There will also be drink specials, and a DJ will begin spinning at 7 p.m.

Lola's: This house of all things shaken and stirred gets its learners permit (uh oh!) as it turns 15. And what better way to celebrate than by offering its signature Ketel One apple martinis for their original price of $7.50. The deal lasts through the end of July.

945 N. Fairfax Ave., (323) 654-5652; www.lolasla.com.

Sol Cocina: This spicy Newport Beach newbie turns 1 this week. Beginning on Sunday and going through Thursday it will offer daily $5 food specials as well as specialty margaritas. On Thursday Chef Deb will roll out her prized lobster taco entree and serve it with a Partida margarita for $15.

251 Pacific Coast Highway, Newport Beach. (949) 675-9800; www.solcocina.com.
