Sewesa Desta recalls being in Washington several years ago and going to Georgetown, the preening suburb of the capital across the Potomac in Virginia and a sort of foodie mecca. Nestled among the shops was an Ethiopian restaurant.

“That one is very nice, because it has a good reception. They make good food; they are not interested only in selling drinks. Here, most of the people who go to the [Ethiopian] restaurants go to drink.”
