Lucas Grill


From early childhood cooking was Lucas’ passion. Upon graduating from high school he enrolled at The Culinary Institute of America. After graduating 2nd in his class (still a sore subject) Lucas decided to follow family tradition by attending MSU to study Hospitality Business.

The next few years flew by with stops at restaurants in Detroit, Chicago, and Grand Rapids. After his taste of working for some of the best restaurateurs in the country Lucas decided to take the plunge. Public was born out of Lucas’ passion for restaurants with a single goal in mind, to create an amazing and creative dining experience by doing everything the right way. He is now working on his latest restaurant, Seventy-Six, which will be opening in Downtown Holland this fall!

In his free time Lucas enjoys spending time with his family and friends, watching his beloved Michigan State Spartans, and listening to his favorite bands Interpol and Tears for Fears.
