Great Minimal Decor: Axe in Venice
Axe in venice is one of my favorite lunch spots. Now that I don't live in venice it's a great excuse to meet my dad there for a rice bowl with chicken. The food is delicious--a fusion of asian and fresh farmers market ingredients. Get there early and beat the lunch rush.
I really appreciate how minimal they've kept the space. The wood ceiling with the simple light track, concrete floor and boxy furniture is soothing (although noisy once everyone is talking). They have a nice outdoor patio in the back too (but I didn't get a picture).
Also, great coffee.
