Mäni's on Maple








After twenty-one years of serving healthy food and baked goods on Fairfax, Mäni's has moved to a new location and expanded to breakfast, lunch, and dinner, a full bar, and patio dining . Esther of Estar LA, Daniel of Thirsty in LA and I were recently invited to a hosted preview the food and cocktails at the new location. The concept behind Mäni's on Maple is genius- fresh, wholesome food, without artificial additives or preservatives, that tastes delicious. We tried everything on the menu, including ceviche, Moroccan lamb and bbq short rib sliders, roasted salmon salads,tofu and beef skewers, margaritas, daiquiris, and many more. The food and drinks were bursting with color and flavor and while I'm not usually a cocktail drinker, I found myself enjoying every last drop of my "Little Red Riding Hood". It's amazing how refreshing cocktails taste when they're made with fresh, organic fruit and without added sugar. I could get used to this! If you're ever in the Beverly Hills area, I'd recommend stopping in for dinner or for happy hour for $6 appetizers and cocktails (Mon-Fri, 3pm-7pm and 9pm-11pm). It will not disappoint.
