Congratulations to Georgetown restaurant Das Ethiopian Cuisine for making Michelin’s DC list of 2021 Bib Gourmand winners! What makes it so special?
According to Michelin, “nestled inside a classic Georgetown townhouse, Das is a haven of soothing colors and lush fabrics. Great care has gone into its styling, and the warm, generous spirit of the staff ensures that the entire experience is every bit as pleasant and refined. The impressive menu runs the gamut from traditional Ethiopian cuisine to dishes that have the potential to take even the most seasoned and ambitious palate by surprise. A basket filled with injera – a spongy and sour bread that serves as both chaser and utensil – is bottomless. For a meal that won’t disappoint, order the chicken and beef combination sampler. Then use rolls of that delicious injera to dig into mouthful after flavorful mouthful of surprisingly varied textures and degrees of heat.”
