Best meal in a long time last night at Ammo, on Highland.

Sweet pea and arugula puree soup to start-- in a white earthen bowl broad enough to get your hands around. Just hot enough for me.

Grilled ahi with white beans and mint, and sautee 'teardrop' tomatoes. Al dente, and perfectly salted. Does anyone else find fear of salt an annoyance and a disappointment?

only concerns:a) waiter from palermo heard asking woman at adjacent table if she was 'still working on it'; b) place closes at 10 on weeknights, but would be well-placed to meet local need for later options: even 11 weeknights/12 weekends would be something. Come on, LA. 3) liquor license pending; now byo.

I'd love to hear other reports.


Great light, great noise, great tables, space, and future, I hope, for this really outstanding place.
