Ethiopian Diamond Restaurant, one of our longest existing local businesses, just celebrated their 20th anniversary in Edgewater Glen this week.

They opened 20 years ago in a single storefront and are still going strong in their current expanded space as well as a 2nd location on N Clark.

“We still remember our 12-1300 block party brunch that year which was a held a couple of weeks after they opened, when the owner, Almaz Ygizaw showed up with a cart filled with Ethiopian delicacies and coffee” recalls a long time Glenlake Ave neighbor. Almaz has been a strong supporter of the neighborhood as well as the local Ethiopian immigrant community ever since.

Ethiopian Diamond took a chance on our neighborhood and Broadway, which had many vacant storefronts at that time. It was one of our first consumer-oriented businesses to make the decision to locate in Edgewater Glen.

They will be thanking the community for their support all these years by offering 20% off in celebration of their 20 years in business all through the month of August.

Stop in, say hi, and try some of their delicious food!
