A TANGIBLE DREAM

Martina is Chef Daniel Del Prado’s breakout restaurant, and we have been honored to be part of that journey since before the doors even opened.

Our initial work for Martina was so special, in part because we were able to help bring to life the Argentine sophistication and whimsy that Daniel and his team (including Morgan Lent and Marco Zappia) were still in the process of bringing to life. During their Catalog Shoot, we captured a sense of space along with some magical light to bring a signature mood to their images—particularly their portraits. Martina was able to use these images to support their launch and subsequent success earning major local and national press accolades from, well, just about everyone.

We continue to work with the team at Martina and their second restaurant, Colita.

Eliesa and her team at The Restaurant Project grabbed us from the precipice and focused our confidence in a critical hour. They saw the vision, articulated it through their medium, and what we wanted to share became tangible. We became better because of them. We couldn't have hoped for a better partner and consider them a part of our family.

Opening a restaurant is terrifying. The construction is behind, you have an entire set of people that have put their lives in your hands, you're worried if anyone will come to your party. If they don't, the consequences of your actions will reverberate, it'll ring in your ear, and considering the possibility of failure is too much for one person to own. Self-consciousness comes at night and you wonder if what you want to say was even worth saying in the first place.

Whoever is reading this should rest easy and hold no reservations. They'll listen, they'll hear you, they will do for you what they did for us and materialize the dream that seemed lost. What they do is smart, elegant and magical. We can't come close to expressing how wonderful The Restaurant Project is."
