Visiting Addis NOLA, it often felt like the spirit of the place just couldn’t be contained by its four walls. That is the palpable energy that Prince Lobo and his family have brought to the work of showcasing flavors from their Ethiopian heritage in New Orleans.
“This is where our passion and dedication for making an Ethiopian experience, a true African experience for New Orleans has brought us,” said Lobo, who runs the restaurant with his mother Dr. Biruk Alemayehu and father chef Jaime Lobo.
One corner by the bar is devoted to a coffee ceremony stage, a designated area for the aromatic ritual of coffee roasting.
