THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Abay Ethiopian Restaurant Restaurant Review

: In Amharic, Ethiopia’s official language, Abay means “Blue Nile,” the largest branch of the longest river in the world; it is also a metaphor for nourishment. A casual gathering place, the restaurant celebrates a rich, diverse culture with authentic cuisine and a focus on the communal experience. Ethiopian art and artifacts adorn the walls. If agile, sit at a backless wooden stool pulled up to a traditional mesob (low, basket-like table). If not, regular tables and chairs abound. The menu is long and best navigated by ordering a combination platter. Sample a variety of dishes mounded high on spongy injera flatbread. Use the injera to scoop up the food, or request utensils. Abay’s menu offers preservative-free lean meats, along with extensive vegetarian and vegan selections. While the restaurant has no liquor license, diners are encouraged to BYOB with a modest $2.50 corkage fee.
