All four of us were simply amazed, flabbergasted, even baby Zim, at just a few months old, appeared bemused.

THE SIGN OUT front reads “Paradise: Authentic Persian Cuisine,” and his renditions of simple Persian and Turkish favorites like dolmeh and stuffed peppers are excellent—but Samad Ahmadi insists his business isn’t really a restaurant. “It’s a gallery,” he says. “Selling food supports me so I can show the next person.”

The last time I was out there, we ended up at another Ethopian place within the 2 block range, on the West side of the street... I cannot remember the name for the life of me. It was also fantastic! Near Moody's pub, though, so in the 5900 block... metromix gives me no clues to the name. Anyone?

I think that Ras Dashen and ED are approximately as close to each other as Sticky Rice and Spoon.
