Ambar is one of our favorite spots for a group dinner in Arlington. The food is from the Balkans, and you can expect a mix of Mediterranean and Eastern European, with flatbreads and croquettes and also lamb pate and crispy smelt. You’ll inevitably have trouble narrowing down your order, so our advice is to go for the “Balkan Experience,” which gets you unlimited small plates for $35. After your fourth bowl of tzatziki, have a post-dinner drink at Baba, Ambar’s cocktail bar nextdoor. They also serve a limited food menu if you’re looking for a quicker bite.
