Dine-in guests can sample classic Ethiopian dishes such as the doro wat with chicken sautéed in red garlic, ginger, and other spices ($12.50), the sautéed lamb of the lega tibs ($12.95), or vegetarian dishes including the spicy red lentils of the yemisir wot ($9.50) and the sautéed spinach and peppers of the gomen ($9.50). Catering prices vary by entrees and number of sides chosen, but typically start at $15 per person.

Axum Restaurant

In many ways, Axum Restaurant is like any good traditional Ethiopian eatery, with meaty dishes served family-style over a layer of injera—the country’s signature flatbread. Yet the restaurant stands out from the pack thanks to the faster-paced activity in the bar area, where local DJs and bands spark late-night dance parties with their pulsing tunes. This modernity carries over to the kitchen as well. Here, chefs concoct traditional doro wat chicken alongside American staples such as chicken sandwiches. The staff also specializes in lamb dishes simmering in herb-filled stews, but create a full range of vegetarian options to mix up their routine, much like replacing a desk chair with an wild pony.
