About LoLo'S Seafood Shack

Thanks for the #LoLosLove
The Original LoLo's Seafood Shack was established in 2014 by Leti 'LoLo' Young who was born and raised in Harlem. Thanks for over a decade of support Harlem!

Chefs Raymond Mohan and Leti 'LoLo' Young-Mohan are elated to share their passion for island flavors at LoLo's on the Water; a spinoff of LoLo's Seafood Shack, the original Cape Cod and Caribbean concept established in Harlem in 2014. LoLo's is inspired by seaside eateries; referred to as “lolos,” that the duo encountered while living abroad in the British West Indies. A lolo serves as a community gathering place for locals and travelers alike, featuring today's catch and island-style barbecue. The LoLo's menu is inspired by their Caribbean roots and travels to over 50 countries together. In addition, LoLo’s unofficial acronym stands for locally owned, locally operated.

A New York Restaurant School graduate, master Latin chef Raymond Z. Mohan apprenticed under chefs Douglas Rodriguez and Jean George Vongerichten. Born on a market street in Guyana, chef Raymond's culinary interest developed as a child shopping at the market daily with his mother for their family's South American roadside stand.

Leti was born and raised in El Barrio in Manhattan. She is a graduate of The Brearley School, the University of Pennsylvania, and the French Culinary Institute. Her favorite childhood memories include eating tamales in her father’s hometown of Belize and enjoying barbecue with her mother Leota's Texan family.
