MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Set on the second floor of a townhouse just outside Little Ethiopia, this tidy jewel may have the bright walls and exposed brick so often seen in mom-and-pop spots, but rest assured that it delivers more than just a spicy stew with a home-kitchen feel. Expect authentic items native to the culturally rich region of the namesake mountains. Rip off a piece of the cool and lacy injera and then dig into the lamb wat, a tender stew fueled by the fiery notes of berbere. Simmered vegetables add a welcome dose of earthy flavor on the side, but wait, what’s that over there? It’s the under-the-radar and off-the-menu dishes that lure expats with bated breath. The larger—and swankier—sibling in Arlington's Court House neighborhood is a boon for Virginia residents.
