Almaz Ethiopian Restaurant Becoming CB 1212 on U Street

Back in mid-Aug. we noticed that the former Almaz Ethiopian restaurant was undergoing major renovations at 1212 U St, NW. The new name has been revealed – CB1212 and a brief chat with the owner revealed that they’d be opening in the next few weeks.

  • Almaz was the last carry over of the Kaffa House. A lot of great memories from that place. The Cold Rice parties, Meta-matics shows, some Chuck Bettis thing, Jungle Techno parties, house music events, dance hall parties. Nunu was just a cool lady. Sad to see it go.

  • +1. Wild Things (original DC drum n bass party) was held there for a while. Good times.

  • Can someone please tell me how this botched, not-to-code renovation got them a CofO??? This city is ridiculous sometimes.
