Best of Boston

2015 Best Ethiopian Restaurant

The Blue Nile

The tangy, spongy injera is the perfect foil to this cozy J.P. spot’s exquisitely spiced Ethiopian classics, from doro wet (a rich chicken dish with berbere and eggs) and kitfo (chili-spiked minced beef with herbed butter) to vegetarian-friendly options like yekik alicha (simmered yellow split peas). Overwhelmed by the options? Order a combo platter and try them all.
