axe for remodelista

Since the beginning of the year, I’ve been shooting for Remodelista to help them cover local LA spots with great design. One of my favorites is up on the site today: Axe in Venice.

Having lived in Venice for a good part of my life, this was always my go-to spot for lunch –most often going there with my dad. I’ve been a huge fan of the simple space and the healthy menu (get the rice bowl with chicken! And brunch on the weekends!). Love the wood slat ceiling, the bare bulbs (they did those over ten years ago), the heath bowls, dark furniture and bare walls. I love that it’s minimal without feeling cold, especially with the new kilim pillows they added to the benches.

    axe was the first “fancy” restaurant I ever went to in LA. I loved the tables… totally informed my unserstanding of the southern California aesthetic.
