The Story

Paulo and Nicolas worked together at Scott’s restaurant and soon became good friends. They found they had a similar approach to service and philosophy of life, and shared a love for the always diverse and inspiring restaurant industry. They both wanted to one day create their own restaurant and bring all their ideas together. After years of hearing, “When are you going to open your own place,” it was a shared client and friend who came forward and reminded the two of their dream and set them in motion. Margot is the culmination of two lifetimes of experience and love for the industry, and the desire to create something truly distinctive together. The next stage of the journey begins.
