Restaurant Review: San Francisco, California

Uma Casa


When chef Telmo Faria opened Uma Casa in January 2017, it became—remarkably—San Francisco’s first Portuguese restaurant. Adorned with hand-painted blue and white tiles, the restaurant emphasizes seafood. Faria also cooks up traditional dishes like piri piri chicken, polenta cake in Madeira sauce, and caldeirada, a Portuguese fish stew. Save for two Californian exceptions, all of Uma Casa’s wines come from Portugal, and beverage director Nora Furst goes far beyond Port, Douro reds and Vinho Verde. Bairrada, Dão, Alentejo and other off-the-beaten-track appellations dominate the cellar. Don’t leave without trying the pastel de nata, a traditional sweet egg tart, paired with a glass of Alambre Moscatel de Setúbal.
