Manuela opened in October 2016 inside the Hauser & Wirth gallery in DTLA. Manuela is named after and inspired by Partner and co-President Manuela Wirth. 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, highlighting artisanal techniques. Manuela also features an exemplary bar program and local beers on tap. 

Designed by Los Angeles native Matt Winter, the restaurant is illuminated and animated by specially commissioned works from artists Paul McCarthy, Mark Bradford and Raymond Pettibon.
