Following the opening of Ray's at LACMA, it's suddenly possible to have a strong dining experience with a side of your Kandinsky. This boost has suddenly struck The Hammer Museum in Westwood, as we learn that a second location of Amy Sweeney's esteemed farm-to-fork restaurant, Ammo, is now open in a cafe setting in the courtyard of The Hammer. This is encouraging news, not only for museum goers, but also for Westwood office drones who may be burned-out on 800 Degrees, but are still not exactly gunning it to Sai Sai. So what's to eat here?

The new Ammo carries a completely new menu, still strapped with a few Ammo essentials including pizzas, sandwiches, and salads with meticulously sourced toppings like Swiss emmental cheese, heirloom tomatoes, and Niman Ranch ham, and committed to the same high quality, according to Sweeney's managing partner, Benny Bohm.

Right now, the restaurant is open for lunch and dinner Tuesdays through Fridays, from 12:00 to 7:00 P.M. (a change to the dinner menu starts at 4:00 P.M.), with weekend brunch served Saturday and Sunday from 12:00 to 5:00 P.M., while Ammo at The Hammer plans a kitchen upgrade and a grand-opening in the coming months. See the full lunch and dinner menus below.
