Etete

Yared and Henock Tesfaye's mother, Etete, always wanted to own a traditional Ethiopian restaurant. In 2004, the brothers helped her fulfill that dream, financing an eatery where today she crafts family recipes for hungry guests. Etete now spends evenings cooking her favorite dishes, filling the dining area with the rich aromas of meat and vegetable stews flavored with onion, garlic, ginger, jalapeño, and berbere spice blends. Every meal becomes a communal dining experience as orders arrive atop a large circle of injera—spongy, tangy, pancake-like bread used to scoop each bite from the central platter.

From the Press

  • "This is a terrific place for vegetarians—the brightly colored hillocks of azifa, a cool and spicy salad of green lentils, and kik alicha, a yellow split-pea stew, are among the best reasons for anyone to come." — Washingtonian
  • "Among the most well-loved spots in 'Little Ethiopia,' a mini-corridor of expatriate-run restaurants, Etete doesn't hold back on the spices." — Fodor's
  • "Minutes into dinner, the naysayer at my table has an epiphany, and by meal's end, he even asks to take the leftovers home." — food critic Tom Sietsema for the Washington Post

Traditional Cooking in a Modern Space

To make Etete feel more familiar to passersby, Yared and Henock chose a contemporary design for the space. Pendant lamps hang above the wood-paneled bar, and a row of tables lines the custard-hued wall, flanked by a backless banquette and slender, black chairs with curving metal legs.
