Lenny Kravitz Digs Venice Beach and Abbot Kinney

Lenny “we’ve got to love and rub-a-dub” Kravitz gave shout outs to Abbot Kinney’s Axe and Gjelina in the LA Times over the weekend.

One my favorite restaurants is a spot in Venice called Axe. My daughter was born in the city, and we used to live up the street from there before the restaurant was built. The food is fresh, they have organic produce and it’s just homey, tasty food made with love. I’d get the salmon bowl.

Just down the street is another amazing place, Gjelina, which has the most incredible Brussels sprouts dish with dates and big chunks of hickory bacon. It’s a real California-type place, with beautiful wood on the ceiling and floor, old tables, low lights, sort of concrete walls with etchings on them.
