Playa Vista resident-owned and in nearby Culver City, Akasha’s “at-home” menu features the healthy comfort foods chef and owner Akasha Richmond is known for. And the menu changes every few days, so there’s always something new to try. They’re doing takeout six days a week, or you can have the food delivered. They also have food to freeze, so you can serve it later in the week for those nights when you just don’t want to prepare another meal on your own.

Our Playa del Rey neighbor is open as a drive-up Pop-up Market. You can order online or even use Postmates if you’d like delivery. They’ve gotten creative for both the community and their employees. Order proteins, produce, dairy, dry goods and more. You don’t even have to get out of your car.
