DC is filled with Ethiopian food, and Ethiopic is one of our favorite places in town to get it. It’s a spacious and modern spot on H Street, but the dishes are traditional and you’ll be scooping them up with injera instead of a fork.

Even with the lack of utensils, Ethiopic is the type of restaurant that works for almost anyone. Your vegetarian or gluten-free friend can get the excellent vegetable sampler or a salad, and you should definitely go for the lamb timbs. Come for a group dinner, or a date who already knows you have no hand-eye coordination. When it’s nice out, eat on the patio for some good people watching.
