300 N Killingsworth St., 285-4867. Lunch and dinner Monday-Saturday.
Enat sits inconspicuously just down the street from the Florida Room, quietly going about its business as the best all-round Ethiopian restaurant in the city while being far from the most expensive. Upon entering, you'll be transported to a warm, welcoming Ethiopian-filled atmosphere. Enat gives diners the opportunity to sit among touristy destination posters, cultural relics, and the aroma of flavorful, ethnic spices. If you're looking for an affordable date place and want to seem worldlier than you really are, welcome. For $27, a couple can share a platter of five veggie dishes and two meats. The derek tibs, which has dry, spicy jerkylike beef, is a favorite of carnivores. On the meatless side, hefty dollops of lentils are spiced with lots of fresh garlic while collard greens have the fresh flavors of both garlic and ginger.
