Altu's Ethiopian Cuisine


Our restaurant is named after its owner, founder, and master of flavor, Altu Tadesse. (Pronounce her name ALL-too tuh-DESS-uh.)

Altu learned to love food and flavor when living in Ethiopia, in her childhood. Foods commonly considered unremarkable (lima beans and cabbage are among them) become delectable with her loving preparation.

Altu instinctively approaches food as a composer creates a musical piece. Her experience paired with her five senses result in enticing layers of flavor.
