Akasha Restaurant Review

:
About the restaurant: After 20 years of cooking and catering events, Akasha Richmond finally opened her own place in the historic Hull Building in downtown Culver City. An impressive interior design respects Richmond’s love of the earth: walls are made of reclaimed barn wood; recycled glass tiles are used for the floor; mobile-like lighting fixtures are equipped with LED bulbs; and chairs are made with organic leather.

Food & Drinks: A health-minded menu starts with market beets with manchego cheese and wild arugula, roasted garlic hummus with caramelized onion flatbread, and a handful of pizzas like the one topped with lamb sausage, kale and tomato. Larger plates include diver scallops that sit atop roasted kabocha squash, and Mary's chicken roasted in a slightly sweet tomato sauce. Side dishes feature onion rings and sautéed vegetables (both a bit greasy), organic french fries, and Gruyère and cheddar mac ‘n’ cheese. There is a vegan apple crisp finished with dairy-free eggnog ice cream, as well as a salty chocolate peanut bar with peanut butter gelato among the dessert options. Specialty cocktails are composed with organic spirits and fresh juices, of course, and wines are sourced from small boutique producers focusing on organic, biodynamic and sustainable practices.
