San Jose’s only Michelin-starred restaurant, Adega, will close for good

Adega owners Carlos and Fernanda Carreira announced that they will close Adega in San Jose’s Little Portugal and open up a second Petiscos location in its place — which will come in January 2024.

It may be a farewell to Adega — but it’s a hello to new beginnings.

This week, the owners of the Michelin-starred Portuguese fine-dining restaurant, Carlos and Fernanda Carreira, announced that they will be closing Adega on Saturday, Dec. 16 — the establishment’s eighth anniversary.

But it’s not all sad news. A second Petiscos will open in its place and offer a more casual, affordable concept like the SoFA District Petiscos. It was recently given a Bib Gourmand award, which honors “hidden gems bursting with flavor that won’t break the bank.”

Also, much of the same culinary team will be behind it: executive chef David Costa, his wife Sandra Murillo, and the owners’ daughter + pastry chef Jessica Carreira.

Reservations are open for Adega through its closing date, so hurry in and get a taste of San Jose’s only Michelin-starred restaurant... for now.
