Village Voice's Description

The welcoming tiny space is encircled with delicate metalwork screens. The Ghenet combination for four is a ridiculously good deal, allowing you to sample almost everything on the menu-all the vegetarian dishes, as well as doro watt (spiced chicken stew), and sega watt (spiced beef stew) and a few other meaty dishes. The assortment arrives on a humongous plate, with injera layered below and also served on the side. It's all earthy, hearty and satisfying. The doro watt is wonderful -- bone-in chicken cooked in a thick, darkly spiced sauce with a boiled egg alongside. And the vegetarian dishes are equally good. We particularly like the earthy, lemony collard greens, the stewed red lentils and the cabbage and potatoes.

    Get the vegetarian combo, try all 8 veg dishes, and rotate halfway through. h/t DJ

    Best Ethiopian food in NY! Come with a group and share the veggie combo. All veggie dishes are vegan too. Huge portions, and lively scene.
