AMMO at the Hammer Museum

It was only a matter of time before self-taught chef Amy Sweeney's AMMO spread beyond Hollywood. The second AMMO outpost was opened at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles in the summer of 2012, providing the location for the perfect indoor-outdoor daytime dining experience complimented by the seasonal, organic, and local farm-to-table food. The menu features freshly made paninis, soups, salads and sandwiches—but don't let those basics trick you into thinking it's typical café fare. Dishes like grilled asparagus with burrata, basil and tarragaon, and the French lentil salad aren't museum cafeteria mainstays.
