Dear PoP – What’s Going on with Zenebach Injera Ethiopian Restaurant?


“Dear PoP,

I love reading your blog and thought you might be a good person to ask about what is happening at the former Zenebech Injera Ethiopian restaurant on T between 6th and 7th NW, a few doors down from the Howard Theatre. Any idea? There are building permits up and work seems to be going on inside but I haven’t seen anybody there to ask if they have any information. Anyway, it’s a pretty blighted block at the moment so it would be great if some new restaurant or shop was going in.”

A few folks have asked me about this spot and we discussed the nearby Yellow House Restaurant on the 600 block of T Street, NW. Sadly when I walked by last weekend there was a stop work order:


Though the other permits said the place will still be a restaurant. I’m not sure if there are new owners or not but I’ll be sure to monitor its progress and post updates. Does anyone happen to know if it is just renovations or will become a new restaurant?

Incidentally I didn’t realize that this area was called the Duke Ellington Plaza:


The Duke definitely deserves less shuttered store fronts on his plaza.
