Leña Brava is Baja-inspired, wood-fired seafood. Wines from Valle de Guadalupe and Oaxacan mezcal, too. By Chef Rick Bayless.
Fire and ice have never played so well together. Leña Brava — ”ferocious wood” — takes its inspiration from the multicultural seaside elements of Baja California Norte, the region’s celebration of live-fire cooking and the area’s world-class wines.
The raw bar tempts with spicy aguachiles and unique ceviches while the kitchen satisfies with everything cooked on an open hearth and wood-burning oven. With one of the country’s best selections of mezcal and wines from the much-heralded Valle de Guadalupe, Leña Brava evokes the unique flavors of one of Mexico’s most vibrant regions.
Our seafood is sourced from sustainable fisheries and environmentally responsible aquaculture enterprises. Our tortillas are handmade from heirloom corn grown in Oaxaca, Mexico!
