Closer Look: Awash Ethiopian Restaurant in Miami Gardens

Closer Look: Awash Ethiopian Restaurant in Miami Gardens

Awash opened in early September, making it one of the very few places in South Florida where one can procure cuisine from the Horn of Africa. But Awash is more than just a restaurant. Much of the dining room is filled with low-slung tables called mesobes that are covered with brightly colored woven cones surrounded by squat leather-topped chairs. Off on the far side of the room, under a thatched lean-to, sits a small charcoal stove near a table covered with coffee cups. The setup is used for a coffee ceremony that in Ethiopia is a joyous gathering sometimes performed thrice daily.
