Rick Bayless – Lena Brava, Cerveceria Cruz Blanca and Frontera Grill

Lena Brava, Cruz Blanca and Frontera Grill
Opened in the summer of 2016, we had the pleasure to create some very unique plating solutions for Rick Bayless and his newest venture, Lena Brava and Cruz Blanca. Using Maple wood, we created two unique platters, an oval platter with a footed bottom measuring 12″ x 8″ and a rectangle platter with a footed bottom measuring 10″ x 8″. Both solutions incorporate a 1/2″ deep indentation allowing for many plating options.

We also had the opportunity to transform the old plastic tortilla warmer into a piece of art.  This is considered one of our all time favorite solutions, the maple tortilla warmer with a black walnut handle.  Made from 1 1/2″ thick maple and 1/2″ thick maple top with a black walnut knob, the maple tortilla warmer keeps the heat and mositure locked inside the compartment allowing the tortillas to stay warm and moist.  We designed green tortilla warmers for Lena Brava and red tortilla warmers for Frontera Grill.
