About Lucas Manteca

For over a decade, creative duo Lucas Manteca and artist/designer Deanna Ebner have called Cape May home. Their passion for surfing, cooking, and nurturing the creative types around them has led Lucas and Deanna to own and operate the best restaurants in South Jersey, including Quahog’s Seafood ShackTaco Shop, and Beachwood at the Dunes. The newest member of the Bread+Butter Restaurant Group family is Dawgtown Dogs, opened in Rio Grande, in 2020. Red Store Love is the digital extension of The Red Store, the beloved Cape May Point restaurant by Chef Lucas.

Lucas’s food is coastal-American at heart, with nods to his Argentinian heritage, and borrows ingredients from other South American cuisines. Lucas was nominated for the prestigious James Beard Award in 2014 for Best Chef in the mid-Atlantic region, and was recently named New Jersey’s Local Food Hero by Edible Jersey magazine in recognition of his efforts to sustain the healthy bounty that defines the state.
