Axe reopens on Abbot Kinney
Axe, Venice's beloved neighborhood eatery, is back in business (since last Wednesday) after being closed down for renovations last August following a small fire.
With slight changes in opening hours and subtle changes made to the menu, owner and executive chef Joanna Moore aims to maintain sustainability and consistency, as before, in her approach to fresh, market-inspired dishes. Joanna's menu at Axe is full of grains, nuts and vegetables, which the restaurant describes as California soul food, nourishing the body and spirit.
Regulars will be happy to know that a replaced ceiling has vastly improved the restaurant's sound level and a few native trees have found a new home to complete the restaurant's interior decor.
Axe, 1009 Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice, (310) 664-9787, axerestaurant.com.
