RESERVATIONS 714 550 0906
Tangata (or "mankind" in the tribal Maori language of New Zealand) features Southwestern decor enclosed by glass walls and a ceiling framed with stuccoed beams and large windows to allow ambient light to illuminate the main dining area. Located in the Bowers Museum's mission-style courtyard, the 160-seat restaurant dedicates half of its available seating to al fresco dining on a large patio area. The patio area opens into the mission-style courtyard that is perfect for romantic weddings or evening receptions. Tangata is open solely for lunch Tuesdays through Sundays and serves a diverse menu of California cuisine "colored" with Chef Joachim Splichal's award-winning French signature style.

Executive Chef Chris Brodeur
Executive Chef Chris Brodeur creates seasonal, ingredient-driven dishes inspired by the artistic and cultural exhibits at the Bowers Museum. He believes in presenting big flavors through simple dishes. "I've always been guided by the idea that less is more and keep it in season".

Chris started in the industry as a teenager when he was a line cook at the Cal Poly dining hall. What began as just another job, soon turned into a love of cooking. Fast forward several years later, Chris has become a Patina Restaurant Group alum, having worked at Descanso Gardens, Cafe Pinot, Nick and Stef's Steakhouse, the Hollywood Bowl and Naples Ristorante and Pizzeria. When not at work, he enjoys being outside in nature. The San Gabriel Valley native spends his free time gardening, fishing, and “of course eating”.
