Axum Restaurant

Flavor and texture are integral to more than just the entrees at Axum Restaurant. Entire tables’ orders emerge on communal serving platters, blending the aromas of collard greens with those of housemade cottage cheese, sautéed beef with rosemary and herb butter, and lamb shanks in fiery berbere sauce. Diners sop up the spicy, savory fare using scraps of injera, a spongy flatbread, in place of silverware or food-filled Super Soakers.

The cuisine is offset by the dining room’s relatively austere ambiance, where fuchsia tablecloths add a vibrant pop of color to the space’s soothing neutral tones. Pendant lamps hang directly above the bar area, illuminating the bartenders as they pour Ethiopian beers and uncork bottles of honey wine, which is made in-house by drilling into the subterranean honey reservoirs.

Customer Reviews

Very Good and Nice Food Portions
Michael B. · May 20, 2013
We will most definitely be back! The service was outstanding - the restaurant was completely packed and they only had 2-3 servers. They managed their customers perfectly without being in a rush - made us feel very comfortable and welcome. The food was terrific - great flavor! Did I say that we will most definitely be back?

Great place! Really enjoyed the experience. Google places you on Colfax between Monaco and Quebec so we did have a bit of trouble actually finding you but did finally just by going with the street number.
