This week in Food & Drink, editrix Kate Schmidt takes on two of the newer Edgewater Ethiopian spots: the Middle Eastern-east African combo Green Village and the underappreciated Lalibela. Tasneem Paghdiwala runs down Blue Nile, which has been around the way for a while.

In the listings: 13 African restaurants.

This is as good a time as any to prop the work of my old journalism teach Harry Kloman, who for the past few years has been researching a book on Ethiopian restaurants in America. Check out his page on tej, the Ethiopian honey wine, as easy to make as it is to quaff (recipe included).
