Armando, co-founder of Manuela in LA's Arts District, collaborated with Chef Wes Whitsell to craft an authentic dining experience celebrating seasonal ingredients from Southern California's top farms. After three years, they ventured to Hatchet Hall, achieving a Michelin star in just two years. Armando has since opened Hind and Irie, blending inspiration from the American South with a commitment to organic, locally sourced ingredients from California's finest farmers.
