2015 Winner: La Brasa


From “burnt” veggie salad to steak, essentially everything is brushed by wood-fired flame at this pan-Latin eatery from former Sel de la Terre toque Daniel Bojorquez, where complex profiles unfold to reveal bright, lively flavors, smoldering like the embers referenced in its name. Keep an eye on the roving cart serving rib roast sliced tableside, and hit up La Brasa’s annexed market for CSA pick-ups and small-batch foodstuffs from artisan purveyors.
