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.  As Mama Alemayehu's second child, Addis NOLA is the major factor in her vision in bringing something truly special to the city of NOLA that it hasn't quite experienced yet. 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. Believe it or not Second lines in Ethiopia are a common form of celebration for holidays like Timkat, and above all else the immense love for food and culture is shared as if they had planned it at the same dinner table. Mama Alemayehu's story starts in Addis Ababa and continues through Addis NOLA and all the greatness that we plan to bring to the beautiful city of New Orleans.
