From the traditional basket ""tables"" to the absence of eating utensils, you'll find that Horn of Africa is a delightfully different dining experience for the adventurous. If seated at one of the basket tables, be sure to order a dish you are comfortable sharing with your dining companions, as most dishes are served in a large, round platter atop Ethiopian flatbread, injeera. Without fork or spoon, you'll quickly grasp the practice of tearing some injeera off to scoop up a bite. Just a word of warning: the amount of food you receive is much more filling than it appears. Be prepared to roll home pleasantly stuffed. G.T., the owner, is wonderfully hospitable and quick to provide dish suggestions. Expect to wait a bit for your meal - each dish is hand-prepared but worth the time. For a splendidly communal and delightfully hands-on eating adventure, Horn of Africa is it.
Pros: great food, intimate dining, very hospitable
Cons: limited seating, walls need finishing, wait for food
