Introducing Todo Verde!

Chef Jocelyn Ramirez of Todo Verde has been serving up delicious plant-based Mexican food around LA for years, and now she’s bringing her talents to The Ford. Check out the menu she’s prepared for the Terrace Café, as well as our Grab & Go Market, which she’s stocked up with goods from local makers.

Pack a picnic

Continue (or begin!) your tradition of bringing food to The Ford! We offer seven different places to picnic outside of the amphitheater. And of course, all food and beverages—including those brought from home—are allowed inside the theater during the performance.
