DESCRIPTION

Never mind the traffic jams, amplified rent prices and smog associated with big-city life. For many true foodies, nearly any downside is worth enduring for the wealth of ethnic cuisines available in America's largest cities. And L.A. wouldn't be L.A. if those restaurants didn't come with a touch of glam. Take chef-owner Genet Agonafer's elegant café in Little Ethiopia, for example. Traditional Ethiopian dishes shine with gourmet quality, all served in a comfortably stylish setting on Fairfax Avenue. A fresh batch of soul-warming injera accompanies any selection from the African side of the menu. Try Agonafer's excellent version of the classic doro wat, spicy chicken in red pepper-butter sauce.

 

 

"At the heart of Fairfax Avenue's Little Ethiopia, Meals by Genet is more or less an Ethiopian bistro, which is to say a homey, soft-lit dining room that looks at least as French as it does African. . Even an Ethiopian grandmother would approve."

- LA Weekly

 

 

 

"... year after year, we find ourselves returning to Genet Agonafer's bistro, a softly lighted dining room whose gentle beef tibs, her crisp-skinned fried trout, her vegan stews and her minced raw beef kitfo owe much to the virtues of careful home cooking."
— Jonathan Gold, Los Angeles Times, 101 Best Restaurants
ADDITIONAL DETAILS
Beer and wine available. Serving dinner Wed-Sun. Closed Mon-Tue.
