An unusual peninsula; more than 1,800 miles of coastline with the endless Pacific Ocean and 930 miles with the wonderful Sea of Cortez, are the geographical inspiration for an enigmatic place in Baja California Sur. San Jose del Cabo welcomes a new culinary concept created by the award-winning Chef Alfonso Cadena, a space for experimentation and celebration of the encounter between the desert and the sea. A point of collision between two regions separated by geopolitical conditions and united by land and fire.


The Californias, acknowledge themselves as never before; a space that looks out for the red hill and insideis perceived as introspective, warm but extroverted at the same time. 6,300 logs, 5 communal tables, 1 open kitchen and a wooden structure containing the space give shape to an environment burned in its entirety as abstraction and homage to the charcoal grill that will give voice to the cuisine of the 2 Californias.


Woods, smoked bricks and raw steels shape the monochromatic material palette of CARBONCABRON ®, that through its shameless name speaks to us about the irreverent fire, the design of the place, and the brutal and delicate cuisine of Alfonso.


Once again, the duet and their teams behind La Leche ® and Hueso ®, the architect Ignacio Cadena and the Chef Alfonso Cadena, accomplices and siblings, show their playful and innovative spirit within an apparently decontextualized setting but with a high degree of conceptual coherence.


Fire and its transforming capacity become the story to tell; the narrative of the place revolves around it and becomes recurrent. Walls, ceilings and wooden structures completely transformed by fire are expressed in a mystical monochrome that through an incredible multidimensionality, embraces the aromas, textures, colors and flavors to merge in an expressive stroke of sensory delight.
