MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Decked out in walls finished with elegant gold and furnished with plush banquettes, Etete is definitely not your grad student’s Ethiopian standard. In fact, if this setting makes eating with your hands seem slightly out of place, you’ll get over it as soon as those intense flavors hit your lips. This talented kitchen delivers appealing and well-seasoned cooking that celebrates tradition while incorporating fresh and new influences. Awaze beef tibs, for instance, slowly simmered with spices and served with yellow split peas (yemisir alicha) are a nod to the past; while injera "tacos" with berbere chicken, ayib farmer's cheese and collard greens; or crispy green lentil rolls with a Horn spice-balsamic reduction both smack of contemporary nuances.
