New Serbian Restaurant from owner of Masa 14 Coming to Barracks Row will be Called – Ambar

528 8th Street, SE

In early Aug. we learned that the former Jordan’s 8 space on Barracks Row would become a new Serbian restaurant from the owner of Masa 14. The Eastern Market Metro Community Association shares more info:

“The restaurant will serve Balkan cuisine, focusing on dishes from the owner’s native Serbia. The name “Ambar” refers to the bin where corn is stored after harvest in Serbia, and according to Iricanin, is part of every Serbian household.”

Check out a rendering of the space here.

They’ve also recently applied for a liquor license that says:

“New Restaurant, offering full dinner, Balkan-style cuisine. Entertainment Endorsement to include live acoustic music as well as DJs on some weekend nights. No designated dance floor.

Summer Garden with 40 seats and Sidewalk Café with 12 seats. Total occupancy load is 140 with 140 seats inside.

Stay tuned for a possible November opening.
