Located in the Arts District of Los Angeles, Manuela unites chef, farmer and artist to create an authentic and original dining experience. Under the direction of Executive Chef Kris Tominaga, the menu celebrates seasonal ingredients sourced from the best farms and producers in Southern California.

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.

    We LOVE Manuela. The food is consistently delicious and the atmosphere is always pleasurable. This time didn’t disappoint. Our waiter, Nate, was awesome. He added just the right amount of personal interaction and professionalism making sure everything was just right. You can’t have brunch here without trying the biscuits with apple butter. Another favorite is the smoked albacore dip -even if it doesn’t sound good,I promise you’ll be addicted after you try it. All the salads are fantastic. Fresh produce- quality ingredients. Lunch or Dinner, Manuela is a tasty treat!
