Elevated Ethiopian food matches the sleek environs at this uptown eatery, featuring a crisp white dining room, warmly lit by candles and an elegant chandelier. Sample lemony azifa, a lentil spread served in crunchy endive shells instead of on traditional injera bread, and doro wot, a slow-cooked chicken stew, given a craveworthy kick from a blend of ginger and berbere spices. Considering all this decadence, settling your bill brings a welcome surprise: A meal at Zoma comes refreshingly cheap.

A coworker recommended this place to me after I told her I like Awash in Morning side Heights. This place is even better. I figured the only way I could get my best girlfriends to go above 14th Street with me would be for my birthday. Everyone was psyched for my choice and there were some virgin Ethiopian foodies among us but the experience could not have been smoother. I had the veggie platter for two and loved it. Everyone's food smelled amazing. I tried all dishes (where applicable) and nothing was a let down. The bread was perfectly sour. The drinks were flavorful. I cannot say enough good things about the staff. They let us hang out for hours and even brought over plates for my cupcakes. So accommodating! Not to mention the ambiance is very trendy, clean and comfortable. I'd venture up that way anytime for this kind of food, service and fun. I recommend you do the same.
