As you make your way across DC, you'll see loads of places offering Ethiopian food, but Meskerem, named for the first month of the Ethiopian calendar, remains near the top of the heap. The spot is 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. This is remarkably easy food for the most conservative palette, best washed down with some imported honey wine.
