Chef José Chesa, a two time James Beard award semifinalist for Best Chef Northwest, opened his second Spanish restaurant Chesa, alongside business partners, his wife, Cristina Baéz and Emily Metivier, in February 2016. The second-generation chef and restaurateur offers his version of traditional Spanish dishes and paellas all prepared in a modern Josper charcoal oven. The restaurant, named for his father José Chesa Senior, celebrates family and its connection with food, from the menu of charcoal-infused dishes to its decor. A full service traditional stand up tapas bar graces the east wall of the restaurant, offering a signature cocktail menu developed by bar manager Dani Frosh as well as a variety of Spanish sherry, vermut cocktails, and a grand reserve wine list. Recognized by USA Today, GQ, Vice, was named to The Oregonian’s 101 Best Restaurants list in 2016 and featured in Portland Monthly’s 2016 best restaurants issue. The restaurant is adjacent to 180, Portland’s first xurreria, also owned by chef Chesa and business partners Cristina Baéz and David Martin. Chesa offers dinner service Tuesday to Saturday from 5 to 10 p.m. Address 2218 NE Broadway Street, Portland OR 97232.
