Opened in 1997 by friends Bruno and Jimmy, Mamma Lucia, Fallsgrove (3500 sq ft.) was always rooted in family tradition and values. It was certainly challenging but we never wavered that the design and concept changes would bring this neighborhood gem into what is now it’s modern glory.
Focusing our attention on three separate environments, we tackled updating the bar, the private dining room, and maintaining the existing seating capacity in the main dining room. The end result was an elegant Mediterranean and Italian-themed space with a modern twist that captured the legacy of Mamma Lucia at the same time bringing the restaurant into the 21st century.
In addition, we were tasked with the responsibility of renovating and revising the storefront of their sister location in Bethesda, MD ((4000 sq ft.). Our goal was to create an inviting and modern storefront that worked with the existing aesthetic. Not only did we achieve the goal, but we also maximized our time by improving the overall flow of the restaurant front to back.
