A Fairfax Legend Goes West

She wants a vegan Seitan Banh Mi sandwich, some kale salad and an acai smoothie.

You want... whiskey. Maybe a burger.

Finally, there’s a place for you both—introducing Mäni’s on Maple, the new incarnation of the famed Fairfax restaurant and bakery, soft-opening Friday in Beverly Hills.

Yes, after 20 years of slinging healthy-ish pastries, sandwiches and Jason Bateman sightings on Fairfax, Mäni’s has a new 90210 address, and you’ll find it’s gotten bigger, sleeker and liquor license-ier.

Think of it as the culinary equivalent of a collagen injection: you’ll see plenty of features you recognize, from Quinoa Oatmeal in the morning to Turkey Chili at lunch, but you’ll also see... more in certain areas. Like a much bigger dining room. A huge courtyard patio out back. And new options like actual bacon (not just turkey and veggie), a Breakfast Club Sandwich and a full dinner menu, including Polenta Lasagna.

And that bar is front and center when you walk in. Nothing against the smoothies at the old place, but after a long day of spreadsheets, gridlock and conference calls with Bruckheimer, you’re generally more in the mood for a whiskey- and cucumber-soaked Southpaw.

Feel free to drink it with either hand.
Note: Mäni’s on Maple, soft-open for breakfast and lunch this Friday and Monday (not open Saturday and Sunday), fully open Tuesday, 310-247-0009, see the slideshow
