Ep. 14 - A Rich Combination of Lebanese Culture and Flavor: Amar Mediterranean Bistro in Delray Beach

1/23/2024
I couldn’t be more excited to sit down with Nicolas Kurban, owner of Amar Mediterranean Bistro (a personal favorite of mine), as we approach the restaurant's third anniversary in bustling Downtown Delray. It’s a heartwarming tale of culinary legacy, peppered with Nicolas's experiences — from growing up in a restaurant family in Lebanon to traveling around the world and working with some of hospitality's most recognized names to his brave launch of a Lebanese haven amid the global pandemic. Our conversation unwraps the rich tapestry of his family's Lebanese roots, his ascension within the industry, and the sheer grit it took to bring Amar to life - a testament to the power of heritage and determination. Imagine walking into a place that feels like home, where the flavors are as genuine as the welcome you receive. That's the essence of Amar, a name chosen for its universal allure and the promise of a warm, modern space that transcends cultural boundaries. We talk about the importance of family recipes, the art of creating a menu that respects tradition while courting local tastes, and the shared dream of growing a business that never loses its soul. We also get a glimpse into the story behind the now-closed Amar Bakery & Market. It's a journey that resonates with anyone who's ever cherished the simple joy of a meal that speaks of home. As we savored the standout dishes from Amar's menu, I’ll bet you won’t be able to keep your mouth from watering. Nicolas shares what makes his Lebanese menu stand out from other Mediterranean restaurants — think creamier hummus and specially seasoned fries with the most delicious garlic toum for dipping — and how the pairing of Lebanese wines with this tradition-rich cuisine can completely elevate the experience. Everything at Amar is made from scratch, and made with love. There is an exciting road ahead for Nicolas and the Amar brand, with hopeful potential for the restaurant to bloom in new neighborhoods and expand upon its success with the addition of a full bar and liquor license, happy hour, brunches… It’s all up in the air, but just talking about the idea was exciting! Join us in this celebration of flavor, family, and the future of a culinary gem that's fast becoming a cornerstone of the Delray community.
