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 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. Our signature feasts feature whole-roasted animals and a bounty of creative salads, sides, “street foods,” and desserts.
