The roots of tradition run deep.
Conceived of creative necessity, AMMO founder Amy Sweeney began serving the
fashion and photography industries of Los Angeles at a time when unhealthful and unappetizing on-set catering was de rigueur. Sweeney had recently returned from extensive European travels, where she marveled at the simplicity of delicious, healthful cooking based upon seasonal harvests, preceding this common moniker of restaurants and chefs by decades. Her imperative was cooking delicious meals that could be enjoyed daily by a Hollywood community that derived its income and infamy from glamour, beauty, and public perception. AMMO materialized the transformation of dining in Los Angeles, first simply as a catering concern, soon after offering a tiny take out window for the neighbors, and eventually growing through multiple incarnations as an iconic and beloved Los Angeles dining room that welcomed Hollywood’s entertainment elite.
