L'estudio is an artisanal cafe, boutique, and lifestyle brand, bringing people together around locally-sourced, seasonal food and inspired, sustainable design.



Alejandro Alcocer is a master of many trades, a classically -trained chef being one, also a restauranteur, furniture designer and artisan. After training in Michelin-starred kitchens across Europe, he moved to New York’s Lower East Side to launch downtown destination Brown Cafe. Along with its catering operation, Green, Brown developed a cult following for its simple, sophisticated approach to seasonal dining. Today, Alejandro splits his time between projects in New York City, Montauk, and Europe.


Uniting sustainable dining and design, l'estudio offers a new, more meaningful way to enjoy food, with a sense of purpose and a spirit of community.

Founded by chefs and artists Alejandro Alcocer and Fernando Aciar, l’estudio is comprised of a restaurant, catering company and soon to open artisanal retail storefront, all based in New York City's Lower East side.
