Chef Fatima Marques merges local and imported ingredients to create the classic Portuguese dishes and regional confections peppering the dinner menu. Begin alimentary expeditions with an oversized thimble of caldo verde soup, brimming with kale and mashed potatoes, then explore the mixed green salad for touristy photo ops with fresh lettuce and tomatoes. Oven-baked ground beef suffused with rich seasoning dons a hearty layer of melted cheese in the empadão entree, keeping it and its mashed-potato posse safe from lactose-intolerant hawks. The bacalhau com natas nestles a combination of traditional Portuguese salt cod, potatoes, onions, and savory spices beneath decadent béchamel cream sauce for a richer-tasting tradition than chocolate gelt made from real gold. Entire meals balance beautifully with a choice of Portuga Lisboa red or Portuga White house wine, and courses culminate with a nata, the restaurant's signature pastry, which envelops a creamy custard with crisp puff pastry

Ample windows and miniature chandeliers illuminate tiles bearing traditional Portuguese patterns and artistic heel scuffs, and dark-wood dining tables provide an elegant contrast to white walls. Dinner hours bestow candlelight upon tabletops as diners lounge beneath beachy umbrellas on the open-air patio.

Natas Pastries

When Fatima Marques realized she needed to open her own pastry business, she wasn't homesick for her home city of Lisbon—she was hungry for it. While walking the streets of Los Angeles, her head would swim with images of cream puff shells and the perfectly balanced filling that defined her native Portugal's signature pastries, known as "pasteis de nata." But no matter how long she looked, she couldn't find a suitable LA fix for her sweet tooth. So she did the only acceptable thing and took matters in her own hands, which would soon be covered in more flour than science ever thought possible.

Ms. Marques opened Natas Pastries in 2005, filling it with the scents of sweet custard nata pastries as well as savory varieties stuffed with sausage, spinach, and feta. Full cakes and other desserts—from flan to cherry strudel—have more than fleshed out the menu over the years. Today, Natas Pastries and its blue and white glazed tiles also house a full-service Portuguese cafe that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner alongside wine and beer. Candlelight flickers over the restaurant come evening, when chefs impress with tableside flambés of chouriço sausage and serve it with salt cod.
