The 18 Best Burger Joints in DC
Chef Elias Taddesse takes his Ethiopian heritage and French culinary training, and mixes the influences together for a killer set of burgers and fried chicken sandwiches. The Classic burger comes on a buttery bun with a triple-blend patty made from Roseda Farms, pickled red onions, and a hefty topping of brown butter aioli. The shop also has an Italian option with smoked mozzarella, tomato confit, arugula, and a spicy basil aioli, plus a Butcher’s Burger with pastrami, pickles, roasted garlic-parsley aioli, and sharp white cheddar.

Here you’ll find trend setting dishes such as a doro wat chicken sandwich and a kikil-style French dip with roasted rib eye and senafich (Ethiopian mustard) cream. Ethiopian tea can be enjoyed as dessert since black tea and spice-infused milk make up the “shahi” ice cream. A full service restaurant coming in 2021 will showcase Chef Taddesse’s signature cooking style blending classic French cuisine with modern Ethiopian flavors.
