Museum restaurants can seem stuffy at times, but Manuela, a new restaurant housed in the courtyard of the Hauser Wirth & Schimmel museum, is light, airy and approachable. Open for lunch Wednesday through Sunday, dinner Wednesday through Friday and brunch on the weekends, Manuela's menu is rooted in chef Wes Whitsell's Texan roots. Diners can find dishes like a deer burger, blackberry cobbler and chilaquiles, along with beer, wine, cocktails and homemade kombucha. Oh yes, and there is a garden with chickens.

A great spot for brunch! The airy, skylit spot is in a perfect location, with easy access to art featured at Hauser and Wirth and Salt and Straw. Service was speedy and personable. Highly recommend the deer burger and churros with dipping sauce! Street parking is easy to find in the area too!


Located in the cool Hauser Wirth & Schimmel complex, Manuela is worth seeing for the design of the space alone. The food is above average, but not particularly outstanding. It can be hit or miss depending on what you order. Getting rid of the typical spiel on small plates and everything meant for sharing would have made it a more pleasant experience.
