This Ethiopian restaurant distinguishes itself from spots nearby with its small menu. That makes it easy not to miss the shuro, a delectable chickpea dish with a complex, gradual heat; the yemisir azifah, a cold lentil dish with a great piquant tang; and the “Lalibela special tibs,” sumptuous bites of sautéed lamb. Alternatively, you could just order one of everything—that way, you won’t need a menu at all.
