After a study of three Tom Douglas restaurants, one thing seems clear: the man does not believe in electricity. At least, he does not believe in lightbulbs, as the atmosphere of Dahlia Lounge, Serious Pie, and now Lola hover somewhere between "dim" and "pitch black." Perhaps it is for this reason that each of the locations is accompanied by a bushel of free matches at the front of the house. Are we supposed to light our own way to the table, Little House on the Prairie-style?
