After working as Michael Jackson’s private chef, Akasha Richmond opened this namesake restaurant to showcase her signature farm-to-table cuisine. Housed in the historic Hull Building—a former hospital built in 1925—the dining room evokes an industrial-chic vibe with tall brick archways, walls of reclaimed wood, and organic-leather chairs set beneath asymmetrical light fixtures. Using fresh artisan ingredients, Richmond prepares such specialties as homemade onion rings with smoked-paprika aioli, and the Niman Ranch pork chop with kumquat chutney and cheddar grits. The bar serves handcrafted cocktails like the Emerald City, made with organic gin, house-made basil elixir, and fresh lime.

Insider Tip:

Large crowds and closely packed tables often result in a noisy environment here; visit during off-hours if you’re looking for a quieter, more intimate experience.
