It’s not entirely clear how an Ethiopian restaurant became a craft-beer attraction, but no one’s complaining. With only 12 draft lines, the Seward spot’s tap list looks small compared with other beer bars. But as every guy with a size 7 sneaker says, it’s not the size that counts, it’s what you do with it. The Blue Nile regularly cycles its stash and hosts themed tap takeovers, as well as live music. MICHAEL RIETMULDER

Capsule review:

Try a combination plate to sample the assorted Ethiopian stews, served over flat bread. Vegetarian dishes available. ( , )
