Chef Daniel Bojorquez and Chef Frank McClelland are excited to open La Brasa in Spring 2014. The food at La Brasa has culinary influences rooted in the same countries as many of the residents of East Somerville: Mexico, Peru, the Middle East to name a few. The heart of La Brasa is the wood on which this food will be cooked. Most people associate the smells of a wood-burning stove and an open fire with family, friends, and community – the backyard barbecue or camp-side fire, the hearth in the home, conversations and good food enjoyed while relaxed and at ease. At La Brasa, the goal is to produce a top-tier, casual culinary experience that recalls these same feelings – a place to dine among neighbors with food that reminds us from where we came and at the same time takes us to new and far-off places.
