DESCRIPTION

THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED

It's safe to say you won't find another Pittsburgh restaurant quite like Abay. Opened in the revitalized East End neighborhood by young attorney Jamie Wallace in 2004, Abay stakes claim as the city's first (and for a while, only) Ethiopian restaurant. The dining room is decorated with authentic Ethiopian art and artifacts that hang on blue walls painted to remind you of the Nile River. The platter-friendly food - the larger your dining group, the better - is served on traditional spongy flatbread, injera. Start your meal with sambussa, hand-wrapped pastries stuffed with peppers, herbs and either minced beef, spicy chicken or vegetables. (The vegetarian section of the menu is larger than any other section.) Entrées include vegetarian, beef and chicken selections, among them: alitcha wat, beef simmered in an onion and herb sauce, and shiro wat, a spicy vegetarian stew of split peas, lentils and chickpeas.

"The menu is long and best navigated by ordering a combination platter."
- Gayot
ADDITIONAL DETAILS
No alcohol available. BYOB. Serving lunch Sat-Sun, dinner Tue-Sun. Closed Mon.
