ATLANTA - For siblings Tamar Telahun and Simon Gebru, creating a successful future means honoring the rich traditions of the past.
Telahun and Gebru are the owners of Feedel Bistro, a Metro Atlanta restaurant specializing in East African cuisine. Specifically, the menu highlights the Ethiopian and Eritrean heritage of their childhood; Telahun and Gebru were born and raised in Ethiopia, and their parents were from Eritrea.
Feedel — which means "alphabet" in both Ethiopian and Eritrean — opened in September 2018, and has since gained a loyal fanbase with its menu of vegetarian, vegan, and pescataruan entrées. You’ll see the strong familial connection reflected on that menu, with recipes coming straight from their mother's kitchen.
Feedel Bistro is located at 3125 Briarcliff Road Northeast in Atlanta, and regular hours are 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Tuesdays through Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sundays. To check out the menu, click here.
