Judging New Restaurants – Ambar

528 8th Street, SE

Ambar recently opened back in Jan. in the former Jordan’s 8 space on Barracks Row. Their website says:

Where southeastern Europe meets South East D.C.

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 Balkan meaning “a chain of wooded mountains”. With a desire to introduce 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.

You can see their menus here. Anyone check them out yet? Any must order items?
