Bombera is …

… a firewoman.

… a full-service restaurant where chef Dominica Rice-Cisneros and historian Carlos Manuel Salomon turn lessons from ancestors and elders into a loving place for family, friends, and community.

… where the culinary ways of Mexico and California intersect with the environmental urgencies of our time.

… committed to social action in our communities.

… a tribute to Oakland’s beautiful history and people.

… a protector of the sacred flame of maíz

—Paloma Martinez-Cruz and Carlos Manuel Salomon
