Hello 2017!


As we kick off 2017 with our first Manresa Journal, we would like to thank you for your support and patronage. This year marks a huge milestone for the restaurant and team—our 15th anniversary. To celebrate, we are planning some events right here at our home in Los Gatos and will also be taking Manresa on the road. Please look out for details in the months ahead. We look forward to celebrating with you this year!

Follow Our Family Meal


Staff meal is that sacred time before opening where everyone comes together to eat and get ready for the night of service. If you’ve ever wondered about staff meal at Manresa, you can see what our very talented team puts together by following @ManresaFamilyMeal on Instagram. Discover everything from Wagyu tacos by Kristofer, our cook from Iceland, to Thai fermented pork by Chef de Cuisine Mitch Lienhard. It’s guaranteed to make you hungry and perhaps inspire your own family meal at home.

Manresa Heads on Vacation and February Reservations

A reminder that Manresa will be closed for vacation from January 17 through January 31, reopening for service on Wednesday, February 1.

During the month of February, we will be open on Super Bowl Sunday—February 5. Manresa will also be open for regular service on Valentine’s Day, Tuesday, February 14. Join us to celebrate! Please call 408.354.4330 or visit the website to make reservations.

Mardi Gras 2017!


The Bywater will be celebrating Mardi Gras all day on Tuesday, February 28. Raise a glass (or your hurricane or frozen daiquiri) and celebrate with the team over good food, drink, and music all day long (beads optional!). Check out The Bywater’s website, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages for details coming soon.
