The story of LV Mar

chefmanuel

Chef learned his art in some of the most revered kitchens in the Bay Area. Working beside Michelin recommended masters, Chef Manuel embraced a world-class philosophy of gastronomy. Known for his no-nonsense approach, Chef Manuel understands that the race to creating the finest contemporary cuisine is one that has no finish line.

Always inventing, while respecting traditional palettes, Chef Manuel creates menus that are new, fresh, and yet familiar. Continuing his long list of successes that includes properties like Bucca Giovanni, One Market, The Left Bank, and (his own) La Viga, Chef would like to invite you to LV Mar…the same passions, the same expertise, taken to a new level.

LV Mar is the next evolution of Chef Manuel’s vision. A casual, up-scale experience, LV Mar is where comfortable atmosphere, and the finest in gastronomy meet. It’s all about the highest-quality ingredients, the most refined techniques, and a unpretentious environment where satisfied guests are not just clients…they’re a part of the recipe.
