We’ve enjoyed many a bottomless brunch—in the unlimited-mimosas, pants-on sense, of course. As of Monday, you can order a similar deal at dinnertime. Capitol Hill’s Balkan spot Ambar is set to launch an all-you-can-eat evening menu, complete with all-you-can-drink specialty cocktails, wines, and beers, for $49*. 

Restaurateur Richard Sandoval is well versed in bottomless brunching, offering similar options at Masa 14, El Centro, Zengo, and Ambar on weekend afternoons. With the dinner deal, many of the regular menu items will be available for unlimited ordering within a two-hour window; think platters of meats and cheeses, spicy crab spread, and the yogurt-topped Ambar burger. For an additional $10 you can add on specialty dishes such as a mixed grill or a rib eye with cognac jus. On the beverage side you’ll find vodka-spiked mango lemonade, mojitos, and a Sarajevo Old Fashioned mixed with plum brandy and rye whiskey, as well as house wine and Dos Equis beers. The restaurant is partnering with Uber to get tipsy guests home should they overindulge. 

The menu starts on Monday, January 27, and will be served during regular dinner hours.
