Ray's & Stark Bar is the ground floor restaurant at LACMA and the kind of place you would assume is violently mediocre, but in reality, is very solid. The menu has everything from a kobe burger to margherita pizza to hamachi crudo, which basically means the whole group is going to find something to eat. Their outdoor patio is massive and the perfect spot to get some fresh air during lunch. Warning: They’re closed Wednesdays.
