Portuguese Pop-Up Dinner at The Restaurant
By Angela Lewis Serrano
San Miguel de Allende welcomes back Chef Telmo Faria, former executive chef at Tacolicious in San Francisco, for a pop-up dinner on Wednesday, November 18, at The Restaurant. Chef Telmo will be offering a five-course tasting menu taken from his newest project, Uma Casa.
Wed, Nov 18, 6-9pm
800 pesos (1,200 with wine pairing)
The son of Portuguese immigrants, Telmo spent the early part of his childhood on the island of Faial in the Azores, Portugal, where his father operated a family restaurant. It was there that his love of restaurants and cooking took hold. He later moved to San Jose, CA, where he grew up eating well and learning to appreciate new cuisines. A graduate of the California Culinary Academy, Telmo has headed the kitchens of La Salette restaurant in Sonoma and Tropisueño, Tacolicious, and Chino in San Francisco. With Uma Casa, Telmo is returning to his Portuguese roots and sharing his culture.
This will not be Telmo’s first trip to San Miguel. He visited the town back in 2011 for a pop-up dinner with Tacolicious at The Restaurant. He returns this time with his soon-to-open restaurant Uma Casa, offering a five-course tasting menu for 800 pesos (1,200 pesos with cocktail and wine pairing). Limited seating, reservations required (154 7877).
