La Brasa Restaurant

RODE Architects was selected to design the renowned chefs Frank McClelland and Daniel Bojorquez's new restaurant in East Somerville. The entry door is saturated with colorful reclaimed wood blocks, sure to catch one’s attention. Inside, the space combines raw materials in a thoughtful casual culinary experience. The walls are covered in wood boards and distressed white brick; grand windows let in the light above a wall-length banquette and tables made from rough planks; with reclaimed wood clads at the back bar and the steel bar top.
