The wait is finally over.
After a yearlong renovation–and just in time for the new school year–Columbia-area Ethiopian/Eritrean restaurant Massawa reopens tonight.
A favorite with the university crowd since it first debuted in 1988–it's located on the corner of Amsterdam Avenue and 121st Street–Massawa bills itself as New York City's oldest African eatery.
The menu is known for its traditional Ethiopian and Eritrean dishes, including spicy vegetable and meat stews served with injera, a crepe-like sourdough bread.
The restaurant will be open every day from 8am to 11pm.
