Stumbled upon this gem when looking for somewhere for a quick lunch before a meeting. What a great find! Had the hummus veggie wrap that was by far the best hummus veggie wrap I have ever had. Came with a salad and I had their coconut green tea which was also superb. Highly recommend Akasha!

Have been here twice, and it's been memorable and very enjoyable both times. First visit was several months ago, and we had an inexplicably creamy vegan chocolate gelato of some sort that was so impressive that I have only a vaguely pleasant memory of the entree (quinoa, maybe?). Most recent visit was a few months back. Dining companion had sliders, onion rings, and macaroni. I had a spring pasta with English peas and mushrooms in a cream sauce. The bar scene seemed very hipster-trendy.

This place is a treat. A touch pricy, but delicious. The small plates, like the Pulled Pork Sliders, which are slow cooked and served with a little slaw, just the right amount of sauce and a touch of heat...and the Pappardelle, with a poached egg and bacon, are perfect. For entrees, I wholly recommend the Quinoa and/or the Sea Bass in a Curry Sauce.

A couple of words of warning, though. Ask for the salt an pepper, all of our items were underseasoned. But that's something we can take care of on our own. And know that some of the entrees, like the Short Ribs, are on the small side.

Beyond that, enjoy the great atmosphere, the great wine list, and the great food,

And sit at the bar, you'll get served faster, the stools are comfy and the bartenders are friendly. If you go on a Wednesday...1/2-off bottles of wine.
