I've eaten at a lot of Ethiopian restaurants across the USA, since it is my favorite cuisine. Alem is among my favorites, rivaling those in larger cities such as Washington DC and New York.

We're those crazy people: we brought our three children 4-and-under to an Ethiopian restaurant and let them eat with their hands. There was no better way to finish off a cold morning and early afternoon in the city than settling in to enjoy some tea,...More
