To our amazingly supportive patrons, we have bittersweet news for La Brasa Market and Café. In the coming months the Market and Café space will be closed during the day while it undergoes reconceptualization. Due to an increase in community interest, we are endeavoring to expand our public and private special events programs.

We hope you will keep an eye out for our goings-on through our website and social media outlets as we fill those four walls with more E-Som Markets, guest chef pop-up dinners, art shows, tastings, and more surprises down the line.   

Our coffee program, featuring George Howell coffee, will continue to live on in the restaurant where you can find specialty coffee drinks made with precision and passion.

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 private and semi-private dining available in our café and in the restaurant, both available seven days a week, year round. The café can accommodate up to 35 people seated and 50 people for standing receptions and the full restaurant space can accommodate up to 150 people.

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.

Interactive Private Events
Please inquire about availability for Coffee Cuppings & Cooking Demonstrations.

Chef Daniel Bojorquez and Chef Frank McClelland opened 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.
