  • Born in Mexico City, Richard Ampudia moved to New York in 1987 to study film at NYU. In 1992 He was hired by Keith McNally at the hip SOHO restaurant “Lucky Strike” where Richard realized his true passion was in hospitality, not film. In 1993 he opened a simple Mexican restaurant called Vera Cruz in the then unknown neighborhood of Williamsburg, Brooklyn which quickly became a popular hang out for the growing community of local artists and bohemians. In 1998 he opened Cafe Habana in Manhattan, and following its success, he teamed with Serge Becker on the groundbreaking Mexican restaurant, La Esquina – a runaway hit that fueled an incredible interest not only in Mexican food but also on the art and hip culture of Mexico City. In 2006 he moved to Mexico City to work for Contramar as Director of Operations and in 2008 he was hired by Culinary Concepts by Jean Georges to help spearhead their expansion to Mexico and Latin America. In addition to Lolo’s Surf Cantina, Richard currently owns Bar Bruno, a “Mexican Bistro” located in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn.

  • Dolores Herrera del Olmo Vda de Ampudia. affectionately known as “Doña Lolo” by everyone who knew her was born in Born January 12th 1901 in Mexico City.

    Raised in what was then the sleepy town of San Angel (now a neighborhood in Mexico City) she was the 3rd youngest of 10 brothers and sisters.  During The Mexican Revolution Lolos family was kicked out of their Hacienda by the invading Zapatista Army and forced to escape by horseback into downtown Mexico City. 

    Regardless of how hard life was during and after the Revolution, Lolo maintained her fighting spirit and always smiled regardless of life’s difficulties. Though she had no formal education, she was full of innate wisdom, and always had a smart phrase or “dicho” for every situation that life could throw at her.  

    She also happened to be an amazing cook who every Saturday would invite all her grandchildren to her house for an all-day feast. She was our Abuelita, our partner in crime, our confidant, and an inspiration.
