AK – New Grub on Abbot Kinney

AK, the new restaurant named after the street on which it resides, should be officially opening next week. They had a “meet the neighborhood” opening last Sunday for the Street Festival where they served some mini burgers, wine and beer. Family style seating inside and a nice patio with seating by a fireplace outside, there will also be an upstairs to follow. Featuring a full bar and a Scandinavian influenced menu, AK should be a welcome new scene to Abbot Kinney.

Keri scanned the brunch and dinner menus and they are after the jump! (Click on them to make it full sized.)

  • when will there be something less expensive? and how do i know it’s really organic? can they just write “organic” on the menu and automatically add on $10 bucks to each dish? i’ll let you know how mcuh i like it after it officially opens.

  • Family style? There’s a reason I don’t talk to my family… Maybe we should call this “friend style”.

  • Bridge Troll, you could call it “people you are about to call a dumbass style” seating … which is always a danger of being sat next to some random dumbasses. I think every time I have been sat at a table next to someone at AXE they have been a dumbass. I don’t go there anymore.

  • Good to see some Scandinavian food.
    The place must be owned by Swedes, since it looks Scandinavian food primarily Swedish.

  • jdeville – seriously? Is it creepy to find yourself in a Yo! Venice photo, knowing we were right there and you had no idea? 😉

    You’re the guy with the white hat, right? If so, why haven’t you called me?! I don’t give my number out to just anyone, you know.

  • ah. just what Venice needs. Another over priced completely sterile environment to eat. A $21 omelet! These people have no shame. What a joke.

  • I’m hoping those prices include either a small swedish boy to sit by me and brush crumbs from my beard , sing me songs,bring me drinks and kick peoples shins on demand or they are large “family” portions.

    Whats the exact, and still negative, opposite of letting chain stores on a street? If enough of these places keep popping up I am all for a Denny’s being allowed on the street.

  • I agree that AK has too many expensive fancy restaurants and not enough on the affordable end of the spectrum (especially as it comes to sit down restaurants). I heard a rumor that a diner is going in on Venice around the corner from AK (one that will stay open late for the post-bar crowd). Anyone else hear anything about this?

  • y’know, it strikes me that AK is becoming exactly what it wants to be, that is, boutique-y and expensive (not necessarily a bad thing if you are a home owner or concerned about rising crime). if what interests you is value, go down to rose, get a table at la fiesta brava, and enjoy the best under $10 mexican you’ve had.
    the vast majority of restaurants never see the five year mark, and many close down after just one. if the owners of AK can make it slinging $21 omelets and $15 apps in these times, i congratulate them, as i enjoy my $4 breakfast burrito.

  • Leila, I think the diner rumor you are relating has to do with the Sammy’s Camera building. There have been a many interested parties over the past couple years, and as of yet I don’t think anyone has committed to taking the financial and tediously bureaucratic plunge. Before Sammy’s closed Vittorio, owner of the lovely Piccolo at 5 Dudley, invested some time into researching the idea of opening a large ristorante. About a year ago a very thorough investors package was put out to some Venicians from Fred Eric-most likely what the diner rumor derives from. More recently I overheard someone at LADBS plan check trying to get a spa / gym / juice bar approved…
