The buzz. What people are saying about "The House"...
Manhattan House is grateful for the support we receive from the press and social media for our ambitious seed-to-plate cuisine, community outreach gardening and our Junior Chefs educational program.
"The best farm to table food in LA!" - Laura Schreffler, Haute Living LA Editor-in-Chief "At the tiny gem that is Manhattan House, Chef Juan Torres works closely with local farms to ensure guests can enjoy the freshest food in the South Bay. Meats are hand selected from trusted growers and usually butchered in house and some produce is even grown in local Manhattan Beach community gardens as part of the restaurant's Junior Chefs elementary school educational programs in partnership with Growing Great." - Haute Living "This is literally my dream restaurant. The concept here is seed-to-table, which means most of the menu is either raised, grown, or in-house... Will be back probably every week since I live so close!" - Yelp review from Katie N. "Our 5th grade team and myself are so excited about going to dinner Wednesday night and experience the Spaghetti our 5th grade junior chefs have cooked up.We are alwaysso appreciative when our students get real world experiences such as this. Thank you to the Manhattan House staff and the Growing Great team for having this type of program which gets our students excited about cooking, eating right, and using locally grown food." - Principal John Jackson, Robinson Elementary School "Best meal I've had in some time!! I was here for a corporate event on one of their closed days. The drink options were plentiful but the food was stellar . . . everything served was top notch and there was enough to go around. There's nothing worse than missing out on good eats when you're sharing! The staff was very attentive and kept our glasses full while we filled our bellies. If I'm back in town, I would definitely make this a stop for dinner! They sure know how to throw a party!" - Yelp review from John K., Private Event guest "Manhattan House [is] providing an incredible and inspiring opportunity for our [Junior Chef students] to experience first hand the ingredients, science, passion, and preparation behind creative and healthy food.
