Customer And Product Spotlight


This is the first story in an occasional series of customers at Mäni’s and their favorite dishes.  Our intent is to publish fun, or amusing or interesting experiences of customers.  These stories are for the most part spontaneous.  Our first story in this new category is about Ruby.  Ruby doesn’t fit our classic demographic, but there’s no question she loves coming to Mäni’s….

Let me introduce you to Ruby.  Apparently her favorite dish is guacamole, not necessarily with chips.  Perhaps the chips take away from the pure flavor of the guacamole.

Ruby licking the plate.  Yes customers are allowed to do that at Mäni’s

Ruby really liked the guacamole and is deciding if she should order one more plate of it..??  It was sooooo goood.

Ruby doesn’t wear make-up, she prefers the look of the food.  It’s very natural, nothing else added, so its perfect at Mäni’s….

  1. This is the most beautiful baby I have ever seen—she should be on the cover of a magazine!!!  her parents must be beautiful also to have made such an angel!

  2. What a beautiful child!  My family and I are considering coming to Mani’s from San Diego just to meet some beautiful people like Ruby.  Your menu looks great also.  Espescially the guacomole:)

  3. Another star is born in California!!  I think Ruby should be the poster child for Mani’s!  How can anyone not look at this beautiful child and smile!

    If choosing Ruby is an example of Mani’s taste – I’m sure Mani’s food must taste GREAT!!!

  4. Oh my goodness what a beautiful little angel and eating so well at such an early age!  Her parents are clearly doing something right!!!  If only we’d all started eating Mani’s at 9 months or so (and started applying avacado masks to preserve our baby soft skin too!)!  Really, she’s on to something here!  To top it all off, she’s naturally sweet just like Mani’s deserts!  (My favorite…)

  5. Oh, if we only had a Mani’s near where I live—and we could use lots of those adorable little Rubys. She adds a whole new dimension to the attractiveness of guacamole! I agree with previous comment—you cannot look at that angel without smiling. She just made my day!

  6. When we travel we generally look for a good pizza place – but wow, now we plan to run straight to Mani’s – because of Ruby and that angelic face!

  7. Where is the nearest agent????  A child this beautiful can’t go unnoticed by the public for long.  She must be on to comething at Mani’s….I didn’t like avacados and guacomole until I was well into my….you get the picture!  How proud Mani’s and her parent’s must be.  What an angel!

  8. Well, I agree with everyone elses comments about Ruby! What an angel. I will start coming to Mani’s more in hopes of a Ruby sighting. I’ve heard her parents are famous, too!

  11. Ruby, you are an amazing little girl.  You are so beautiful!! I wish my son would eat healthy food like you.  You are truly a star!!!

  12. Yum…delicious guacomole – approved by only the toughest critic – a beautiful young delight herself – Ruby!  We will surely visit this hot spot when in Calif.  Do you deliver…to New York?!  Does Ruby’s radiant smile accompany each package?!  Great choice for your first customer story.  Congrats to you, Ruby, and Ruby’s fine parents!!

  13. How beautiful is this child?  Covered in green goo and still looks absolutely adorable?  My God!  This girl’s parents had better get her an agent…and FAST!  She could sell ice cubes to Eskimos with a face like that!

  14. If I eat your guacamole, will I look that good?

    Comment by Patti Starbuck  on  1/16  at  5:22 am


  15. Seeing cherubic little Ruby devouring her healthy avacoado is not only precious but let’s this viewer know that Manis’ welcomes and delights in the joy of little angels such as this. Not all restuatnts realize how important this is.  Clearly Ruby’s parents know where to go to allow their child to thrive and be dazzled by simple wonders like avacados. Having lived on the West coast in the past, I will surely visit Mani’s with my children on our next visit to LA.  It can’t be soon enough!  Well done Mani’s.

  19. A poster child (sometimes poster boy or poster girl) is a child afflicted by some disease or deformity whose picture is used on posters or other media as part of a campaign to raise money or enlist volunteers for a cause or organization. Such campaigns may be part of an annual effort or event, and may include the name and age of a specific child along with other personally identifiable attributes.

  28. European banks a year ago used a temporary ECB loan facility funded by more than $500 billion, which was in part funded by the Federal Reserve and has been due for the past two weeks. Needless to say, the introduction of the Greek crisis and the recognition of the problems in Portugal, Ireland, Italy and Spain have put European banking into a very compromised position. If the ECB liquidity is removed very simply the bottom could fall out. This is still a severe crisis with no solution in sight. What we have is crisis upon crisis caused in part by the US subprime crisis, but also the result of European credit expansion that began ten years ago and structural problems caused by one interest rate fits all within the euro zone. The cost of money fell during the past ten years due to perceived safety and guarantee that all euro zone debt would be equal to the quality of German debt. It did not work out that way and as it turned out Germany in varying degrees ended up carrying all the other members, especially when it came to balance of payments deficits.

  29. Following on from the incredible success of the Apple iPod, the iPhone has been released to a massive fanfare in the media. It is now being suggested that initial demand will be too great for the retailers to meet. The thought of combining a full all in one multimedia device with a cell phone has obviously struck the right chord with the public.
