The Garden at Manuela
Manuela, a restaurant in downtown LA’s Arts District, has turned outdoor dining into a whole new concept with The Garden at Manuela, a charming outdoor space forged into the property’s existing outdoor footprint with bright yellow furniture inspire by the city’s endless supply of sunshine. At dusk, the twinkling lights come on, evoking LA’s glamorous side.
Chili de Arbol Chicken
The Garden at Manuela has its own new menus — both food and beverage, from Executive Chef Kris Tominaga and Beverage Director Niki Kotantoulas. This chili de arbol chicken with white barbecue sauce and pickles is perfectly at home in this outdoorsy setting.
The Garden at Manuela has a new standalone cocktail bar. This drink, a mix of gin, lime, sugar and homegrown cucumber parsley and mint, is one of the new craft cocktails from Kotantoulas, who has also conjured up a selection of spring-inspired sangrias.
Guests can soak up both nature and street art at the Garden at Manuela.
