If you’re going to open a restaurant inside a big-deal art gallery in an Arts District warehouse, it better be ridiculously good looking. Luckily, the Southern-ish spot Manuela more than satisfies this requirement, with its kind-of-country, kind-of-sleek outfit, multiple bars, and a patio that makes you forget that you're inside a warehouse, not technically outside. It’s hard to resist the Redneck Platter (with country ham, pimento cheese, and biscuits), but there’s also a deer burger and salad-like things for the gallery crowd. After starting as a lunch-only spot, they’re now doing dinner and weekend brunches too.
