went to check out la brasa last night after a long hard day of doing nothing at sowa.
la brasa is a newly opened restaurant in somerville. an alum of l’espalier and sel de la terre, Chef Daniel Bojorquez’s new venture was one of the most anticipated openings of the year. featuring a wood fire grill, la brasa’s concept is ‘wood-burning grilling everything’. Bojorquez wont stick to one specific cuisine, rather, he will incorporate a taste of mexican, peruvian, middle eastern, french and more into cooking with live wood fire.
la brasa took more than 2 years to open; the space is absolutely beautiful, clean, bright, inviting, and spacious.
speaking in tongues – strawberry infused crema de mezcal, luxardo amaro abano, citrus, bitters.
if mezcal’s on the menu, im def getting it. the mezcal was on the lighter note which makes it more pleasant to drink.
the food was excellent: incredibly fresh and great choices of ingredients, unique, creative and pleasant flavors, precise executions, oh and beautiful ceramics. we enjoyed everything we had. drinks were unique and delicious. yay for mezcal!! in fact, the entire drink menu (see below pictures) looks soo good i wanted to try everything. the operation was smooth especially for a restaurant’s only been opened for a few days. our waiter was extremely friendly, thoughtful, and knowledgeable. la brasa might be the best one we’ve tried in boston this year. yes, even better than alden and harlow.
