Named after a hip, bohemian neighborhood in Mexico City, La Condesa is a contemporary Mexican restaurant in Austin, Texas. Inspired by the vibrant energy of its namesake, we created a bold restaurant brand that appeals to a young, chic crowd.
The hand-painted typography reflects the signs and menus found at market stalls and lunch counters throughout the region.
Patrons collect matchbook covers that reveal grimacing luchadores and coasters that feature traditional fortune-telling songbirds.
Custom handmade lettering recalls Mexican street sighs and perfectly complements the innovative food and lively atmosphere. La Condesa has fast become an Austin favorite, winning multiple accolades, including a nomination for “Best New Restaurant” in 2010 by the James Beard Foundation. Look for their taco truck when you’re in town.
