Inspired by Jean-Luc Godard’s  Alphaville film,  Architect Joyce Wang  designed Ammo, a most beautiful restaurant enclosed in a six meter high glass box, tucked away on the lower level of the Asia Society.

On one side, the tall windows face a lush jungle garden at the base of a hill; peering up at the walking bridges above in the gardens.

As you enter yo are  impressed by the hanging, deconstructed spiral staircase light fixture and the back drop of copper piping; an embossed pattern covering the wall behind the bar.  The elements combine well and create a refined atmosphere with a bit of a steam-punk edge.   Once you sit and start to take in the different elements every detail starts gaining importance, from the green velvet banquettes by the window. to the wood choices.  Ammo is  very well put together.

The menu is designed by chef Roland Schuller is a gentle  mix of east and west.  A menu that allows you to sample local flavors without pushing you out of a comfort zone.  Highly recommended are the Sous Vide Cocktails; quite an interesting take on some classics.
