A new Ethiopian restaurant is coming to Van Dorn Plaza sometime next year.

Asmare Kebede is planning to open Roha Ethiopian Restaurant at 291 S Van Dorn Street, formerly The Little Gym.

Kebede said he is still in the permit process for the restaurant and estimates it could take up to five or six months. When the restaurant does open, though, Kebede said it will have injera and other traditional Ethiopian dishes, along with wine — if he secures the permit.
