Ethiopian is one of our favorite cuisines and we seek it out whenever possible. Went to Meskerem before seeing a ballet on Saturday night. No reservations needed - we were seated and served immediately. Food was very good - exactly what I would expect for...More

I will start by confessing that I am no expert in Ethiopian cuisine! We tried this to do something different. By design, Ethiopian food is for sharing and to make it work best, you need a bigger group than just me and my wife. It...More

Ethiopian cuisine is a definite find for vegetarians, and some of the vegetarian food actually is better than the meat dishes. I've dined at several Ethiopian restaurants and while I am far from being an expert, I can tell you what I like and don't...More

An informal restaurant this place has awesome food. The combo platter makes sense if you're alone as I was so that you can sample quite a few dishes without paying a bomb. The individual dishes are a bit pricey. The food is great. All the...More
