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.
By Paloma Martinez-Cruz and Carlos Manuel Salomon
ABOUT CHEF/ OWNER DOMINICA RICE-CISNEROS
Dominica Rice-Cisneros is a chef, entrepreneur, mother, wife, community activist and urban gardener who believes that every single person deserves access to high-quality foods.
Chef Dominica honed her fine dining skills over the course of her 30+ year career where she spent six years working closely with her mentor Chef Alice Waters at Chez Panisse, interned with Chef Alex Lee at restaurant Daniel, worked at the Four Seasons Hotel in New York City and with Chef Antonio Rivera in Mexico City. It was her experience in Mexico City where she developed an appreciation for the local farmers markets and seasonal cooking, a practice she continues to live by today.
In 2017, Dominica was inducted into the Les Dames d'Escoffier, San Francisco, a philanthropic group of women leaders in the fields of food, fine beverage and hospitality and named one of the “Female Titans of the Bay Area Food Scene” by Eater San Francisco. She continues to be a champion for having more women of all ages and stages of life in the restaurant industry. Dominica believes in training and providing career opportunities for local women in the Bay Area.
Born and raised in Downtown Los Angeles, Dominica is a 2nd generation Mexican-American whose family origins tie back to Chihuahua, Mexico. Dominica continues to raise her small family in the Bay Area. She stays inspired by their travels, the idea of carrying on traditional Mexican recipes, and perfecting Chicana Heritage cooking.
