The atmosphere at Hidmo can be somewhat schizophrenic. That's due in part to the eclectic musical tastes of the owners. On any given night, they might host a local hip-hop showcase or a performance of traditional African music. But Hidmo is steadfastly welcoming, the kind of place where asking the staff for a menu recommendation might earn you a trip to the kitchen, where one member of the sisterly duo who own the place will sit you down for a crash course in Eritrean cuisine. First, there'll be spiced lamb in spicy pepper sauce, coupled with a discussion of the greatness of Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo, which more often than not can be found playing on the nearby television/VHS combo. Then lentils stewed with chiles. Once you've got the gist, you can order like a regular. The entrées come in constellations of simple green salad, meats, and veggies sitting atop a flat pancake of injera bread. It's a deceitfully humble presentation. Hidmo is the place that pretense forgot.
