Lucio Blázquez was born in Serranillos (Avila), on 12th February 1933. When he turned 12 he came with his father to Madrid and began working at the “Meson del Segoviano” with the owner, Dona Petra, who loved him like a son. She was who, many years later, would sell the restaurant to Lucio. Already then, at such a young age, his skills with people were noticeable; he showed his interest in the work, and he also transmitted his joy to customers, who already gave him good tips. Many of those customers were students by then, but they’re now important figures in the social life of the country, regulars of Casa Lucio, and friends at the same time.
Casa Lucio opened its doors in November 1974, after more than six months of works to improve the structure of the building, and since then that warm and personal manner with customers remains one of the important facets of this place. It’s the hallmark of the house that Lucio has transmitted to the staff, which has been a big family for over 20 years. They already know the habits of almost all regulars, trying to please them and making them pass a good time.
This is how Teodoro Martin, the head waiter, pays special attention to his work, trying this philosophy remains intact after all these years.
Another essential for customers to leave the restaurant completely satisfied is the quality of products; Lucio, with the help of the head chef Aurelio Calderon, guarantees daily that the raw materials are of top quality.
