Rosalind’s opened in 1988 as the first Ethiopian restaurant on Fairfax. Not only is this a true staple of LA's Ethiopian community at large, but chef/owner Fekere Gebre-Mariam is credited as being the “godfather of Fairfax.” He was instrumental in getting Little Ethiopia officially designated by the city in 2002. These days Rosalind's is an all-out party. Come to their large, festive space any night of the week and you’ll find a dining room full of families and friends eating gigantic “emperor” sampler platters (with doro wot, kitfo, awaze tibs, key wot, and more, all on a bed spongy injera), swigging Ethiopian beer, and doing a little cutting on the dance floor.
