One of the standout features of Manuela is the convenient parking options. Whether you prefer street parking or the hassle-free valet service, accessibility is a breeze. The restaurant is housed within a captivating building that not only hosts the dining area but also features a charming bookstore and several art galleries. This unique setup adds an extra layer of charm to the overall dining experience, making it an ideal spot for a delightful date night.
Manuela offers both indoor and outdoor seating, and the decor creates a cozy and inviting ambiance. After perusing the online recommendations, we decided to try a few must-try dishes, and they did not disappoint.
The Biscuits were a true revelation, living up to their "Must order" status. The buttery goodness paired with the delectable fruit jam was a delightful way to start our meal. The Popover Benedict showcased an innovative approach, with the flipped-over bread layer adding a delightful twist to this classic dish.
My personal favorite was the Ocean trout tartare. The combination of red onion, capers, bronze fennel, colatura vinaigrette, and garlic created a flavor profile that was simply irresistible. Each bite was a burst of culinary excellence, leaving a lasting impression.
While the French Toast was enjoyable, it didn't quite reach the heights of the other dishes. The same can be said for the cocktails; they were satisfactory but didn't quite match the brilliance of the food.
