Pisco y Nazca Gastrobar
Pisco Y Nazca is a vibrant new Peruvian cuisine concept coming to the greater Miami restaurant scene. This new restaurant will explore the diverse flavors of the Peruvian pantry with an emphasis on seafood driven dishes. The name is derived from the colloquial Peruvian saying “entre Pisco y Nazca”, which translates directly to “having a night of conviviality”, and celebrates the two historic towns of Pisco and Nazca. The overall design and brand identity are a modern revival of Peruvian culture and landscape. The octopus logo is a simple, elegant representation of Pisco Y Nazca’s seafood forward menu displayed in the graphic style of Peru’s famous “Nazca lines”.
