The downtown LA Arts District has come a long way. Just a few years ago it became a buzzy neighborhood with art galleries, trendy shops and tasty restaurants. Now, it’s even more so and I see it continuing to grow.
One of the latest and already popular restaurants in town, Manuela, is located inside the Hauser Wirth & Schimmel art gallery in the Arts District. It’s such an amazing concept that blends together both food and art in an open air setting. Within the space there is a garden with fresh produce, herbs, and chickens that lay eggs for the restaurant. Talk about farm to table fresh. Within the gallery there’s a large courtyard with tables, sculptures, murals and street art. The restaurant also has lots of art on display and a sleek interior design, along with amazing Southern-style food.
Note: This is a definite must see for the food and art lover.
