2014 Winner: Lucy Ethiopian Cafe

Every scroll of Lucy’s injera tells a story. One night, it’s written in fiery berbere sauce; on another, it’s inked in the ruddy stain of red lentils. You can choose your own adventure by topping its spongy surface with your pick of veggie combos, or mountainous helpings of tibs—a stewy, hearty mix of beef and greens. Either way, finish with some peanut tea, a frothy elixir of milk and honey that makes for a very satisfying denouement.
