Our Story

A survivor of the ancient world, an amfora is a vase with two vertical handles used for the storage and transportation of oils, grapes, grains, fish, and wines. While a common ancient pottery shape, the amfora varies in size and design within certain cultures, ranging from a simplistic ceramic vessel to a highly decorated one. With ingredients like fresh caught seafood and an assortment of distinctive salts such as fleur de sel, a delicate, hand-harvested salt collected in shallow pools of seawater in France and Portugal, our food reflects the range of the very vase we are named after. Just as amphorae traveled around the ancient Mediterranean world, we at Amfora aim to provide a unique culinary journey as you experience coastal Mediterranean dishes with influences from Spain, French, Italian, Adriatic, and North African cuisines.
