Manuela

Los Angeles
American Restaurant
$$$$

Chef Wes Whitsell, formerly of Osteria La Buca, is at the helm of this homey restaurant inside the Hauser Wirth & Schimmel arts complex. The Southern-meets-Texan food concept is obvious in the menu's smoked meat selection and in brunch options like chorizo egg sandwiches, chilaquiles, and a ranch-dressed BLT salad. The dining room is decorated with salvaged chandeliers, glass, and woodwork from nearby Arts District warehouses, mixing feelings of hometown nostalgia with creative innovation.

Industrial chic and secret garden meet at Manuela, where you can nab a seat on the extensive plant-strewn patio or in the charming dining room that’s adorned with paintings and hanging floral bouquets. Located in the Hauser & Wirth complex, brunch is every weekend from 10 am–2:30 pm, with a focus on seasonally driven, Southern-inflected dishes like Shrimp and Rice Grits and a Popover Benedict with Sweetheart Ham, poached egg, hollandaise, and garden greens, plus shareables like beignets and cast-iron cornbread. A variety of wines by the bottle and glass are available, including some organic options, as well as craft cocktails like Florida Man with blueberry-rested Silencio mezcal, Lo-Fi Vermouth, lemon, and African basil.
