For over a decade, creative duo Lucas Manteca and artist/designer Deanna Ebner have owned and operated the best restaurants in South Jersey, including Quahog's Seafood Shack, and The Taco Shop (with two locations). They opened The Red Store in Cape May Point in 2012 and Lucas was nominated for the prestigious James Beard Award in 2014 for Best Chef in the mid-Atlantic region.
Highlighting seasonality and simplicity, Chef Lucas uses all locally sourced ingredients from the tri-state area.
"Cooking for my guests at the restaurant is like cooking for my family," says Chef Lucas. "Dining is a joy. It's an experience. Our restaurants are just a stage for you to have a good time. At the end, that's what really matters."
Whether you’re grabbing take-out for an impromptu picnic at the beach, or looking for a memorable Cape May dining experience, we have you covered.
