No. 68: Ghenet Combination at Ghenet

There aren't many cuisines more conducive to sharing a multitude of dishes than Ethiopian, and Brooklyn's Ghenet makes it particularly easy to order a family-style feast for the whole table: Order the Ghenet combination for four people, and you'll taste half of the meat-based stews and all of the vegetarian options on the menu for about $15 per person. The kitchen laces its lentil stews and lamb tibs with plenty of heat, which is tempered by the sour note of the spongy injera bread it's served with. You'll get to choose your dishes when you order the combination, but don't miss the doro wett, a rust-colored stew laced with the heat and earth unique to Ethiopian spice blend berbere that bobs with tender hunks of dark-meat chicken (often a drumstick) and a hard-boiled egg.

Later this year, we'll pen our Best of New York issue, our annual love letter to what's great in this town. When that paper hits the streets, you'll find our picks for the very best this city has to offer when it comes to dozens of cuisines, restaurants, dishes, and drinks. Until then, you can get a taste of our contenders as we count down, in no particular order, our 100 favorite dishes from around the boroughs, a list of laudable eats worth tracking down right now.
