It’s funny how H Street NE has gone from a dump, to overpriced, without stopping for very long in between. This Ethiopian restaurant is not bad, but it can’t compare to the 9th Street row, much less West Alexandria. And yet everything costs more, sometimes twice as much. And the tastes are ever so slightly dumbed down.

This place has made lots of “best of” lists, but that’s just a sign they are desperate to pick out an Ethiopian place you can take your grandma to. It’s not a dump, but it is a dominated asset.
