THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Caffe Adulis Restaurant Review

: While many New Yorkers have sampled the flavorful cuisine of Ethiopia (often sitting on uncomfortable little stools), Caffè Adulis is the first Eritrean restaurant to hit the city. The restaurant does an admirable job of taking the traditional African dining experience to a more upscale level, both in cuisine and décor. For example the spongy, sour-tasting injera bread used to scoop up many of the traditional stews is served flavored with beets and garlic as well as the traditional variety. Tibsie, a sautéed dish, is served with beef, lamb or seafood and is light and flavorful. Tsebhe Begi’e is a wonderfully rich lamb stew with a textural sauce of tomatoes and berbère spices served on a disk of injera. There are more contemporary dishes on the menu, too, like red snapper with Japanese eggplant and basmati rice and filet mignon with collard greens, spinach and arugula which are also worth a try. The dining room is spare to the point of feeling spacious with hardwood floors and soothing beige walls; service is utterly welcoming.
