Buffalo’s first Ethiopian restaurant, Lucy Ethiopian, is moving to a bigger place in Riverside.
The new place, 916 Tonawanda St. Buffalo, NY 14207, will add more African dishes, traditional Ethiopian seating and more parking, said owner Abba Biya. Construction is finished, he said, and he awaits final inspections before he can open.
Biya and Naima Tesfu opened the restaurant at 388 Amherst St. in 2012. They served a grateful clientele who had previously traveled to Toronto for doro wat (chicken), misir wat (red lentils) and injera (pancake-like flatbread), or gone without.
Biya will be the owner of Lucy African Restaurant, renamed because it’s adding African staples like fufu, cassava and ugali. Lucy’s Ethiopian menu will remain the same.
