Meskerem, named for the first month of the Ethiopian calendar, remains a stalwart of quality despite many years on the block. It's the just-seared lamb served in spicy sauce, the wat (stew) scooped with spongy injera (pancake-like bread) and the vegetables, all deliciously spiced, not hot but rich, complex and savory. It's all best washed down with some imported honey wine.
