Dilnessaw Bitew

Bitew was traveling back and forth to D.C. to satiate his craving for authentic Ethiopian food. To shorten his commute, he opened his own Ethiopian restaurant in 2008.

“Everything is made by hand, even the cheese. We make it right here from milk. Ethiopian food has to be authentic.”
