This Design District find is a fantastic, funky place, not to mention an ideal opportunity to expand your palate. The authentic Ethiopian fare -- D'Jaj Bi Zitoune, marinated chicken tenderloins sautéed with green olives and spices; and Doro Wat, Ethiopia's national dish of chicken legs and thighs marinated and seasoned in garlic, ginger, and fenugreek (a Mediterranean-grown spice and herb), and stewed in a spicy Berbere sauce (spicy Ethiopian sauce with cardamom, shallots, peppercorns, and fenugreek) -- is outstanding and bursting with flavor. If you like spicy food, you'll love Sheba, whose chefs are not afraid to use generous amounts of peppers, peppercorns, and African spices. The restaurant itself exudes a very cool vibe with dim lighting, authentic African masks and decor, and an awesome world-music soundtrack. The bar scene is abuzz here with local artists, hipsters, and those with more adventurous palates.
