AmberTucked away behind the Curzon in Goodman's Fields, Amber is an all-day Middle Eastern and Mediterranean restaurant serving fresh, healthy salads, Pide (boat-shaped flatbread) and a daily changing hot tray bake. You get a warm welcome and a choice of cold salads like beetroot and goat's cheese, served against a backdrop of pale wood, concrete walls and hanging plants. Set up by Murat Kilic and Pierre Aprin, Amber gets its name from the ancient amber trade route which ran from the North and Baltic coasts to the Mediterranean Sea and these areas influence the cooking too. Miso glazed aubergine is a stand out dish among a choice of five salads, served as sides to mains of salmon and chicken chop. In the evening, the place has a completely different feel. The lights go down, the candles come out and glazed lamb shoulder and whole trout are among the more sophisticated main course options. The cooking is accomplished and you can even see the chefs at work in the open kitchen so rest assured it's all freshly made on the spot. Spot on.
