The first San Jose restaurant to win a Michelin star—only to lose it two years later—has captured the honor again.
The small Portuguese restaurant in East San Jose’s Little Portugal neighborhood was a little known establishment when it exploded onto the international culinary scene in 2017 with the Michelin recognition.

Adega recently reopened with a seven-course tasting menu created by Chef David Costa.
Los Gatos chef David Kinch once again received three Michelin stars for his celebrated Manresa restaurant.
