Bringing Southern charm to the Arts District of Los Angeles, Manuela unites chef, farmer and artist to create an authentic and original dining experience. The menu celebrates seasonal ingredients sourced from the best farms and producers in Southern California, and highlights artisanal techniques, such as smoking and pickling.
Serving a wide range of vegetables, grains, fish, and game, Manuela also features an exemplary bar program, which serves classic cocktails using house-made bitters and tonics. Local beers are on tap, while the carefully selected wine list is designed to pair with the smoke and acid at the heart of Manuela’s menu.
Designed by Los Angeles native Matt Winter and named for Manuela Wirth, the restaurant is illuminated and animated by specially commissioned works from artists Paul McCarthy, Mark Bradford and Raymond Pettibon.
