Branding Session with Williamsburg Restaurant Casa Pearl

Casa Pearl | Restaurant Brand Session in Williamsburg, Virginia

Casa Pearl was introduced to us just a few weeks into being in Williamsburg and it has become a staple in our dinning choices…and I know I’m not alone! I was invited in to Casa Pearl during their lunch service, watching table after table being constantly filled from the moment they opened till way past the lunch hour. It was an honor to capture the behind the scenes workings of this Williamsburg cult favorite.

About Casa Pearl

Casa Pearl is the brainchild of Mikey Maksimowicz. Mikey, originally from the Northern Neck, was formally trained at the French Culinary Institute in New York City, graduating in 2005 before he could legally purchase alcohol. At Casa Pearl, Mikey is the Executive Chef but can be seen working the front and back of the house. As we can see through their branding session, Mikey fills in anywhere he is needed–greeting customers as well as making sure orders are on track and its presentation is top notch.

Goals for the Casa Pearl Branding Session

The goal of our session was to provide, Stephanie Cleary of Cleary Marketing Solutions, the photographic content to manage Casa Pearl’s social media effectively. Having images that created a professional social media presence would give authority to this wonderful local Williamsburg restaurant. Check out Casa Pearl’s Instagram page where they post their daily specials and fish + drinks of the day!
