This is a hosted meal.
Akasha is one of my favorite places to eat, but I’ve never visited for lunch.
It’s different during the day, with a cafe up front, which I never notice at night. There are all sorts of people working on their laptops, drinking coffee, etc.
We sit in the main dining room (FYI the building was once Culver City’s first hospital)…
…my eyes went straight to the Chopped Salad. With Chicken. Hold the provolone.
Vanessa, their publicist from Wagstaff, ordered her usual, the Punjabi Mung Beans and Rice – Market Veggies, Caramelized Onion Flatbread, Greens, Tomato Chutney, and Raita.
Akasha knows her Indian food – her restaurant Sambar is right next door!
