Sambar is a tiny bar with no discernible sign, and attached to the back of Le Gourmand french restaurant. The cocktails, crafted by Jay Kuehner are very good (I started with the Nocturne -- scotch, smoked black tea liqueur, caramel water, and orange bitters). It serves fine food from the associated restaurant, and in summer has a patio that Providence Cicero describes as "like drinking in Monet's garden."
Est. 2004 (Le Gourmand 1985) - Building constructed: 1926
