Our Story

       Addis Ethiopian Restaurant is a new gem in the sea of amazing New Orleans restaurants. Not only is it Family-Owned and Female-Led, it is one of the only two Ethiopian Restaurants in the entire state of Louisiana with the addition of only one more restaurant when referring to all African Cuisine in general.  As Dr. Alemayehu's second child, Addis NOLA is the major factor in her vision to bring something special to the city that it hasn't quite experienced before. The name "Addis" comes from the capital city of Ethiopia, Addis Ababa, and translates to "New Flower". The shared aspect of their names is only one of the many things that connect Addis and NOLA, two cities thousands of miles a part yet so close together. Believe it or not Second lines in Ethiopia are a common form of celebration for holidays like Timkat, I know......crazy right, and above all else the immense love for food and culture is shared as if they had planned it at the same dinner table. Dr. Alemayehu's story starts in Addis Ababa and it only just begins anew with Addis NOLA!
