Where southeastern Europe meets South East D.C. <br /><br />Our aim is to put together the finest products of the New World and Old World for your dining pleasure. Perennially on the edge of great empires, the Balkans owes much of its food culture to its history, geography, and climate. The term Balkan is generally believed to come from the Turkish word meaning: “a chain of wooded mountains.” With a desire to introduce Washington, D.C. to cutting edge Balkan cuisine, proprietor Ivan Iricanin has created a dining space that will delight and indulge the senses. Primarily featuring “small plates,” Ambar will also offer wines and spirits from the Balkans not often experienced by the American diner.<br /><br />

"Would recommend to everyone. We live on the Hilll and this is a great addition to all the new restaurants/bars popping up. The drinks are great and so is the food. It is Eastern European food so it is new to me, but everything I had I liked. Would recommend the bread basket, the mushroom crepes, and the pork loin. Also, the service has always been helpful and great the few times we have been there."
