October 2015 to present
These days, dozens of restaurants spontaneously appear in the city only to close in a couple of months. Despite the culinary boom that put all eyes on Mexico City, few restaurants offer a unique overall experience and especially one where food is the main focus.
Establish a place that offers a different experience to diners not only with extraordinary food , but also with a unique atmosphere that is cohesive to each element of the restaurant.
How to offer a new and unique place in a city where restaurants come and go everyday? On top of being in the middle of the gastronomic boom.
The idea –
It was essential to pay close attention to every aspect of the experience going to the restaurant; not just the food but every part of the establishment. From the moment you set foot in place, it was critical to impress and delight all senses of diners.
We knew the right combination of elements to create an extraordinary experience. We put together all the pieces – hired two of the most relevant and daring chefs of contemporary Mexican cuisine: Ale Coppel and Alex Suastegui, placed a major focus on mixology with a fresh and diverse cocktail menu, plus a ” galactic ” setting with plants and meteorites combined exotic music .
How did we do it? –
We made all the elements of the Lucas Local experience consistent with explorative mood to experience something unique in the city . Publications called out our perceptual skills and a galactic atmosphere that created an imminent explosion of senses, from taking culinary risks with Mexican food to playing unconventional music.
We created the concept I AM LUCAS because Lucas Local is a state of satisfaction full of delicious food, fine music, and a cosmic, tropical atmosphere.
