LA Weekly's Description
At Axe (pronounced "ah-shay"), simple and gleaming as a Zendo, the clear ocean air is practically a design element. Some find the austere aesthetic “refreshing”; others find the seats uncomfortable, the overall effect harsh. The wait staff does tend to be more physically attractive than efficient, but this restaurant marches to its own beat, or rather, to that of the chef-owner Joanna Moore, whose breakfast, lunch and dinner menus are seductively eclectic. Try her meal-sized whole-grain pancake, a composed salad, her masterly, seasonal spaghetti aglio olio and any dessert.
Tips from foursquare
It is SO ANNOYING that they won't seat until entire party is here when it is just 2 people. Didn't the owner burn the restaurant down?
the weekend 7 grain pancake. i'm sure it's been tipped already
Try the rice bowl, you can't go wrong!
California soul food complemented by a wine and beer list that features artisan products and boutique producers.
The pancake can be ordered in a half size. This is key when you share with one other person. Still too heavy for just one person in my opinion.
