Pa'La Wood Fired Cooking. We invite our community to participate in a time-honored tradition. Experience food as a daily pursuit, a connection to ingredients as they were meant to be. Pa’La is food with a sense of history, cooking in a way that is inherently approachable and human. The kitchen at Pa’La centers around a hand-built wood-burning oven and a forged-steel grill. In our cooking we use fire, smoke, coals, and embers to create dishes that reflect the seafood, grains, and vegetable-driven coastal cultures of the Mediterranean and South America. We are committed to strong relationships with a few select organic farmers and artisans practicing responsible agriculture and production.
