About the restaurant
Philippos Mengistu gained his first culinary experience at the restaurant his parents operated in Addis Ababa in the early 1970's. Philipos moved to the United States in 1990, with the concept of introducing New York City to Ethiopian food. In 1999, Philipos launched plans to run his own restaurant, this time with the aim of focusing specifically on his family's recipes and creating a warm and cozy environment, surrounded by traditional Ethiopian decor.
