Sometimes, you just want a nice quiet place where you can eat some good food and discuss insignificant things with a friend who only pretends to listen to you. When that’s what you need, go to Zoma. It’s a plain white room on 113th Street with big windows and a chandelier in the middle, and the Ethiopian food here is very good. Get a combo platter, or just get some beef tibs and with a few vegetable sides. (We highly recommend the shiro wett.)
