Fast-Casual Ethiopian Eatery To Open In Columbia Heights
The rumors are true: A new Ethiopian restaurant is coming to Columbia Heights.
Letena is slated to open early this spring in the former Señor Chicken space on Park Road NW near 14th Street NW, Bona Tilahun, a representative of the eatery, told Borderstan yesterday. He is helping his wife, Yamrot Ezineh, set up the restaurant in the DC USA retail development.
Roughly meaning “for our health” in Amharic, Ethiopia’s primary language, the fast-casual eatery will include Ezineh’s takes on her family’s recipes, Tilahun said.
“It’s going to focus on healthy and nutritious ingredients,” he said.
Further information on the menu wasn’t immediately available.
