V.I.P. Greg Lukasiewicz

The restaurateur behind Bull Taco


Published:

After owning high-end Los Angeles eatery Restaurant Devon, which The Wall Street Journal compared to Spain’s famed elBulli, and Restaurant Halie in 2005, Greg Lukasiewicz  found new life folded in a tortilla. The restaurateur launched Bull Taco in Cardiff in 2008 with wife Laurel Manganelli,  revamping the beachside shack previously owned by Manganelli’s family. Lukasiewicz started slinging tacos filled with everything from abalone to foie gras (when it was legal), and, soon after, began sending his daughters to the beach to collect sand crabs for tacos. “I would hand-write the daily menu on a piece of old cardboard,” he says. Now with three locations, Bull Taco’s newest sites will open in Leucadia before summer and Del Mar in the near future. He hopes to make Leucadia a communal dining experience and include shaved ice and local chef cameos. Locations in Cardiff, Oceanside, San Clemente, and Leucadia
