The market and cafe space has been reborn as our sister restaurant, Fat Hen  open for dinner Tuesday through Sunday.  


Group Dining

Private & Semi-Private Dining Life offers us all sorts of reasons to gather together with family, friends, and colleagues and we believe that sharing good food should be at the center of those occasions. With a roaring, wood-burning oven as the focal point against a modern, industrial-chic backdrop we offer a range of menus tailored to all types of functions, from office gatherings, to rehearsal dinners, birthday parties, and weddings. La Brasa features semi-private dining in the restaurant, available seven days a week, year round and buyouts are available for a fully private experience. The full restaurant space can accommodate up to 100 people seated and 150 standing. Interactive Private Events Please inquire about availability for Coffee Cuppings & Cooking Demonstrations.

The Experience

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.

The Food

The La Brasa menu rotates constantly with the seasons and availability of meat, produce and dairy sourced from New England-based farms and purveyors. The style of cuisine draws on cultural influences of our own heritages and those of the East Somerville neighborhood, including Mexican, Peruvian, and Middle Eastern. Our signature feasts feature whole-roasted animals and a bounty of creative salads, sides, “street foods,” and desserts.

Daniel is a native of Hermosillo in the state of Sonora, Mexico. He attended culinary school in Puebla and has spent over a dozen years in Boston working with Frank McClelland at L’Espalier and Sel de la Terre.  He lives in Dorchester with his wife Emily and dog Lucas.
