Dahlak is a casual Ethiopian restaurant that looks like it could be someone’s living room. Order some affordable, delicious food like beef tibs and berbere stew that's brought out on huge platters atop injera bread. Along with a full bar that gets pretty crowded on most nights, the restaurant also has a ton of events where everyone who shows up already seems to be friends. There are concerts, poetry readings, and a weekly karaoke night that ends when the last person finally lets go of the microphone - which is usually pretty late.
