Telmo Faria at Uma Casa

About Telmo Faria

Telmo Faria is the chef for Uma Casa. His personal goal has never been to "challenge" people with his food, but rather to connect with people through his food. His Portuguese menu is inspired and approachable, with an eye toward traditional old world flavors and a nod to local California cuisine.
