Just a block off Market Street, The Amber Den will open next month.
“The Amber Den started with a simple concept: great wine, craft beer and artisanal food at prices anyone can afford, offered in a warm, welcoming environment,” the owner Nick Simonton writes in a release. The casual bar will have a high-top table in the ground floor ‘cove,’ easy chairs in the reading nook and a dining table on the mezzanine.
“My goal is to provide a space where everyone feels comfortable,” Simonton says, “whether you’re in jeans and a T‐shirt or headed home after work. I want everyone to feel free to be themselves and to enjoy the most amazing beer and wine the Northwest has to offer.”
Chef Ryan Boehler is putting together an evening menu with fresh, local and seasonal bites. They will serve artisan meats and cheeses and Mediterranean-influenced small plates. A future lunch menu is also in the works which will feature panini sandwiches, homemade soups and salads.
The Amber Den is located at the corner of 17th Ave NW and NW 56th Street (1556 NW 56th Street), the former location of Nervous Nellie’s. Follow The Amber Den on Facebook and Twitter to get the latest on their opening.
