I love Ethiopian food and think this spot is especially cozy. The vegetarian sampler is delicious and good for two people. The wine list could be a bit better though, it is too limited.

Went there with a large work group for dinner. We ordered the samplers, as well as additional beef, collards, and lamb. Food was delicious, they kept bringing out injera. Drank the spicy tea, which was delicious.
