San Jose’s ADEGA Chefs, David Costa and Jessica Carreira, will curate a tasting menu, paired with select Portuguese wines, along with the following top Portuguese chefs:

Chef George Mendes of Aldea

Chef Alexandre Silvia of Loco


The cuisine of Pedro Lemos has its roots in his early childhood.  He is inspired by memories of his grandmothers:  one working the fields in Bragança; the other selling fish at the markets in Matosinhos.  These, he acknowledges, are the most simple and genuine cuisines.  Therefore, his menu is filled with traditional Portuguese dishes, yet prepared with 21st century innovation.

Menu items, therefore, represent two significant themes from Portuguese gastronomy, the sea and the country.  Such delicacies from devil fish  and octopus,  to rabbit loin and roasted lamb, make for a unique and pleasurable dining experience.
