The Ethiopian Restaurant

The vibrant exterior of the Ethiopian Restaurant -- painted with the red, green and yellow flag of the namesake country -- makes it clear what cuisine is featured here. Inside, the feast proceeds slowly as the kitchen turns out savory and spicy Ethiopian stews, accompanied by plenty of tart injera bread that diners use to scoop up the dishes. The lentils are a particular standout: garlicky green, spicy red and mild split peas harmonizing in combination. The only drawback to a dinner at the Ethiopian? You may have to wander the neighborhood in search of an ATM when you realize the place is cash-only.
