New restaurant opening February 

Audrey at the Hammer, the new restaurant at the Hammer Museum from restaurateur Soa Davies Forrest and chef Lisa Giffen, is opening February 2019. Set in the museum’s courtyard, Audrey will be a full-service restaurant with a full bar—ideal for a sit-down dinner or casual cocktails and a light daytime meal.

Audrey at the Hammer will feature elevated and soulful cooking with a contemporary Southern California feel and centered on the region’s growing seasons. The menu will emphasize European flavors and techniques that will be complemented by a full bar offering fresh, bright cocktails and a diverse wine list featuring small production winemakers.  The modern yet welcoming interior will feature a tile installation from renowned artist Jorge Pardo. Guests will be able to access the restaurant both during and after the museum’s public hours with a dedicated entrance on Lindbrook Drive.

The new restaurant, named for philanthropist and Hammer board member Audrey Irmas, is part of a multi-phase renovation and expansion of the Hammer Museum in collaboration with architect Michael Maltzan.
