“Dear PoPville,

I wanted to invite you to an awesomely unique new happening on Georgia Avenue. Kokeb restaurant is opening an Ethiopian Brunch starting this Sunday, June 29th from 11am – 1pm.

The grand Opening will feature a buffet of amazing dishes, a traditional coffee ceremony, spiced bloody mary’s, honey wine, and music. We will also be selling goods handmade by Ethiopian in a partnership with myfight, a group that is fighting poverty by creating international marketplaces for skilled women.

Going forward, the restaurant will open at 10 am Saturdays and Sundays.

I lived in Ethiopia for two years as a Peace Corps volunteer. Kokeb to me represents what Ethiopia feels and tastes like and this is extends to the genuine hospitality of the owner.”

    Could the OP pass on any more details? Is the buffet going to be every weekend, or just this weekend? Price/head? Does it include booze or no?

    OP Here – This Sunday’s Opening will be a buffet style all you can eat special for $15/person. Drinks – including Honey Wine and Bloody Mary’s will be $5/drink.

    Going forward Kokeb will open at 10am on Saturdays and Sundays and serve brunch with a menu and table service. Entrees will be around $9.

    We will continue to work with Ethiopian non-profits to do special buffet lunches with music, coffee, art and handicrafts – perhaps once a month.

    As mentioned, the food and the owner are both incredible and Petworth is lucky to have them! Please come and provide feedback as we will continue to perfect the experience.
