Ethiopian food in downtown DC

Where is a good place for Ethiopian food here in DC? Would prefer either U Street or Adam's Morgan, but can metro or cab to other places in downtown DC.

    If you go to U Street you can dine at one of the best Ethiopian restaurants in DC: Etete. Low-key and delicious.

          Went to Etete last night with 3 foodies and everyone agreed that the meal was great. A couple of Wats (chicken and lamb) with veggies and some grilled beef (Tibs?). Great injera. Very reasonably priced. Great service.

            I also like Ettete. If you're adventurous, get the Kitfo and make sure to order it raw.

              zenebech injera on florida and 6th. it's a dive, but the food is good. what i like the best is if you get a sampler, every pile of food on the injera actually tastes different. they also have $2.50 beers (including imports) all day, every day.
