You probably don’t go out of your way for museum restaurants very often, but you should make an exception for Audrey at the Hammer in Westwood. It’s in the objectively beautiful courtyard of the Hammer, and serves fantastic food involving (mostly) vegetables. At lunch, you should eat celery root soup and trout roe toast in the beautiful outdoor space, and watch museum-goers roll around in chairs that are more like human-sized dreidels. The restaurant is open for dinner when the museum closes, when you’ll find meatier things like a great pork porterhouse - it’s salty, juicy, and cooked perfectly. Don’t leave without getting a cocktail (our favorite is the Audrey).
