Adega, whose walls are lined with an unexpectedly elegant display of farm tools, has an intimate, rustic-chic atmosphere ideal for special occasions. The Portuguese restaurant in East San Jose uses local seafood and produce to put a California spin on classic dishes like arroz con mariscos and cauliflower, almond, and pear soup. The seven-course, $229 tasting menu comes with the option of one of three wine pairings—ranging from the $149 regular to the $499 reserve, all pulling from a wine cellar stocked with more than 500 Portuguese bottles. If you’re looking for something more casual, Adega’s spin-offs Petiscos and Pastelaria Adega are worth checking out.
