Ambrosia is a lounge, pure and simple. They don’t have a kitchen, which means the bartender can concentrate on just making drinks. That’s all they do, and they do it well. Whether you want shots, a lilikoi martini or lemon drop, they can do it. Do you like your drink dry, up, neat or chilled? Makes no difference, because the bartenders Bill, Jessica, Candice (the owner) or whomever is there will take great care to satisfy your special thirst. 1913 S.
