El Cucuy is a Mexican street-style restaurant currently under construction on Tchoupitoulas Street in New Orleans. The project aesthetic is influenced by South American folklore and heavy metal music. The restaurant will offer a modest interior dining space and bar, as well as a bright open exterior dining and entertainment area. A key element of the project is the restored Airstream that anchors the rear of the outdoor seating area and an accompanying shaded deck space.
CICADA coordinated the overall design vision and permitting documents to bring this mythical monster-themed taco joint to life. The project is anticipated to be completed in the Summer of 2019.
