Queen of Sheba

As a server lifts the lid off a diner's straw-woven mesob basket, waves of ginger, garlic, cardamom, nutmeg, and fiery pepper aromas waft across the table. Instead of using utensils, guests scoop simmered vegetables and stewed meats off the family-style platter with spongy pieces of homemade injera bread. While this ritual remains the same for all Ethiopian meals, diners can customize the experience by ordering mildly spiced servings or tongue-scorching entrees, which teach disobedient taste buds a lesson they won't soon forget. In addition to orders of free-range chicken, lamb, and beef, the chefs can whip up vegan- and vegetarian-friendly dishes by simmering lentils or root vegetables in the region's signature spice blends.

Sunlight streams through the dining room's gauzy white curtains and illuminates the orange, plaster-textured walls. Occasionally, the restaurant hosts live reggae performances, and its gift shop helps visitors replace their pantries' stock of expired powdered astronaut meals with Ethiopian spices and coffees.

Ordering shared plates gives everyone the chance to taste several dishes at once.

This is a fantastic place for authentic tasting Ethiopian food with great service. It is absolutely delicious and it is not loud. The outside is nothing to look at. But the restaurant won't disappoint.

The sampler was perfect for two people and plenty of food. All the flavors were delicious and I enjoyed the experience of the Ethiopian cuisine and atmosphere.
