We had the pleasure of dining at Ambar in Arlington during their opening weekend here. It also happened to be our wedding anniversary. What a meal, and what an experience! The food was as authentic, fresh and tasty as any we had when we traveled in the Balkans. You can order any of the items on the entire menu as small plates -- and it's an amazing value for the quality and variety of food. The mezzes of salamis and prosciuttos were excellent; mushroom soup phenomenal. Lots of terrific spreads -- and then the grilled fishes and meats -- especially the shrimp, lamb medallions and calamari -- were all literally lip-smacking! Absolutely make sure to also try the traditional dishes like the cabbage with stuffed pork and veal stew. All in all, the food and atmosphere and service were first-rate, energetic and fun. Stefan, our waiter, had great expertise, enthusiasm and professional flair. He knew the menu and helped make the meal a true experience!
