In 1999, the Sanchez family made a life-changing decision. They quit their day jobs, their home on the other side of Bristol and moved their two young boys to open the doors to Casamia, a trattoria serving pizza and pasta.
In 2009, the self-taught chefs gained a coveted Michelin star and 4AA rosettes followed a few years later.
In 2012, Jonray and Peter decided to focus on one set menu at Casamia which - along with the restaurant’s decor - changes once a season. This menu aims to showcase the incredible produce available in that particular season, taking influence from the people they meet and places they’ve visited.
In 2016, the Sanchez Brothers brand expanded with the addition of 2 new restaurants: Pi Shop, offering sourdough pizza and ice-cream; and Paco Tapas, an authentic tapas and sherry bar.
WoodBlocX Landscaping was approached to transform the outdoor dining area of the Sanchez Brothers restaurants in Bristol and, working in collaboration with Jekka’s Herb Farm, WoodBlocX was able to help them deliver a welcoming and fragrant area that fits in with their look and feel.
WoodBlocX produced 22 planters consisting of 1255 BlocX and 3942 dowels. The company pre-built the planters at its warehouse in the Highlands of Scotland before shipping them down to Bristol. The benefit of this was that the whole installation took only 5 hours and, with an early start, the team got the work completed before the restaurant opened for service.
