THE SCOOP Chef Akasha Richmond brings her years as a personal chef (she's cooked for Michael Jackson and Barbra Streisand) and her sensibility for sustainable cuisine to the public at this Culver City haven for the eco-chic. Most of the dishes are made with locally sourced, organic ingredients and the impressive wine list features several biodynamic bottles. Even the sleek, loft-like decor by designer Alexis Readinger is eco-friendly. WHAT TO ORDER Slip into a banquette against the back wall and sip an Akashathe signature drink made with fresh cucumberwhile selecting from a variety of Indian-inspired, veggie and organic meat dishes. Not to be missed: the sweet potato fries and salty chocolate tart for desert.
