Ambra Italian Kitchen & Bar is due to open later this month in the space of another former Italian restaurant the long time Fiamma which closed in March this year. The name Ambra means amber in Italian and the new restaurant is expected to seat about 400 people when it opens.

There is not a lot of details about the menu although I would expect the food will be gourmet and higher end than your neighborhood Italian restaurant. Myself i love Italian food but would prefer a neighborhood restaurant with good comfort Italian food than fancier food with more exotic ingredients but thats me.

I thought this trend was slowing down but as part of the new restaurant will be a hidden room called Privata which according to MGM will be a speakeasy serving higher end drinks.
