At Lucy?s Lair Fine Ethiopian Cuisine, traditional East African spices infuse a menu of authentic Ethiopian eats prepared for all diets. When not savoring an all-you-can-eat vegan buffet, vegans can customize the vegan delight platter with injera?traditional ethiopian flatbread?and four animal-free dishes such as collard greens or red lentils.
