Compared with the multi-page menus of many other ethnic restaurants, this one feels like a tweet. There are only five items, and they’re all meat. What makes it a standout is the quality of the prime beef. The long, thick slabs can be had sliced and chopped and served as kitfo or sizzled in a pan and tossed with chilies and onions—a fabulous version of the stir-fry known as awaze tibs.
