TTT Clarendon Decks Its Rooftop for Festive Holiday Experiences, While Across The Street, Sister Restaurant Ambar Unveils Glass Dining Tiny Houses in Its New Winter Garden
Street Guys Hospitality’s Clarendon landmark restaurant, TTT, located at 2900 Wilson Boulevard, 22201, is celebrating the December holiday season with a newly enhanced third floor TTT Rooftop, which is enclosed completely with glass. Snowy nights will be spectacular this winter, as this lofty heated space also has fresh air ventilation from the louvered blue roof, which can be opened during good weather. This provides diners with a safer gathering oasis to enjoy spirited cocktails and casual Mexican-inspired fare. One will find decorative lights, Christmas-inspired accents of evergreen trees, and suspended ornaments. Prancing reindeer and silver balls highlight the bar and surrounding seating in the expansive space. This new four-season glass room will serve dinner and weekend bottomless brunch with reservations recommended during the Christmas pop-up.
At TTT Rooftop, one will find winter cocktails and hot toddies with festive names such as the Holiday Spirit of Baileys, whiskey, coffee, white hot chocolate and nutmeg for $12; the Jolly Toddy of honey-lemon tea, cloves, whiskey and cinnamon for $11; the Candy Cane Margarita, Reposoda, tequila, fresh lime juice, cranberry juice, peppermint syrup and crushed candy cane for $10; the Winter Mojito, light rum, fresh lime juice, Licor 43 and cacao-mint cream for $12, and a mocktail of Cranberry Apple Cider Punch, apple cider, cranberry juice and ginger syrup for $7. During TTT’s happy hour, Monday-Friday from 12 Noon to 5 p.m., guests can partake in special pricing with $6 margaritas, $5 red and white sangrias, wines, and draft beers.
Directly across the street at popular Ambar Clarendon, 2901 Wilson Boulevard, 22201, guests can now reserve one of the 10 fully enclosed new glass tiny houses, that can seat up to six people for dining in warmth, safety, and privacy. They are totally self-contained, with heat, lighting elements and music selections for each host’s personal preference while dining at Ambar. Only the server enters to deliver food and libations. All of Street Guy Hospitality’s employees are tested for temperature daily and follow strict safety protocol. These new glass tiny houses are part of Ambar Clarendon’s new installation of its Winter Garden, located behind the restaurant. The new Ambar Garden will give guests enhanced outdoor dining options. An expansive retractable awning, with versatile siding that can be opened, will cover the new terrace, which can seat up to 60 guests. This enclosure is ideal for warding off winter’s chill while having good ventilation. The Ambar Garden will be completed by January 1, 2021.
Those dining in the District will want to visit Ambar Capitol Hill, located at 523 8th Street, SE, 20003, to take advantage of the holiday décor and rooftop dining under the stars. A new retractable rooftop was part of the restaurant’s recent comprehensive upgrade renovation. Heaters and blankets here ward off the winter chill for enjoying cocktails and Ambar’s award-winning fare. Ambar continues to be a driving force for modern Balkan cuisine and exceptional service. The restaurant’s legendary bottomless dining, the Balkan Experience, has no rival in the region for value and quality fare and has earned recognition with a “Bib Gourmand” from the Michelin Guide. Executive Chef Ivan Zivkovic hails from Belgrade, Serbia, and helm’s Ambar’s creative culinary team.
