New Ethiopian Restaurant in Rochester

Constance English | Jan 12, 2001 11:27 AM

Ethiopian (and one Eritrean) restaurants have come and gone in Rochester probably because it's a pretty conservative town. However, the newly opened "Abyssinian" is a must. The injera (wonderfully sour and spongy bread) is a marvelous accompaniment for the chicken with berbere sauce and the various eclectc appetizers such as chick pea and greens. The service is friendly and the atmosphere extremely pleasant. I really want this place to make it because it's such a treasure. Usually, ethnic in Rochester is synonomous with Chinese, Thai, and Indian. So, it's a treat to have another type of ethnic food in town.
