About this Business
- Bistro, African, Ethiopian, Mediterranean
Solay Bistro was a total delight, the food was wonderful and the people were very friendly. They were more than willing to explain the various dishes and drinks to us. They answered questions that did not even directly relate to the meal. We recommend Solay Bistro to anyone that has the time to enjoy great food and conversation.
pleasant environment, helpful and friendly waitstaff, somewhat lengthy wait for meal

Inside Solay Bistro, which USA Today noted for its "fragrant lentils and Somali-style bread pudding," chef Nadira Abdirahman crafts African and Mediterranean cuisine from entirely organic ingredients. The vegan-certified culinary expert whips up veggie and vegan options such as the Luna burger veggie patty topped with avocado, slow-cooked lentils, and sautéed cauliflower and cashew paste. For meat eaters, she creates flavorful heaps of Indian-style chicken curry and beef stew with meat marinated in house herbs. Nadira also makes five smoothies using ingredients such as dates, kale, and mango pulp, and supplies mango and grapefruit juice for those unable to grow an orchard inside their own stomach.
