Abyssinia is (probably) closed


BlogDH is sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it looks like Wickenden Street’s staple Ethiopian restaurant is calling it a day. How do we know? Partly because we feel its absence in our hearts, and partly because a) there is a sign that says “We are closed”, b) their phone is disconnected, and c) there is “property for lease” sign outside of the establishment. Every time someone on staff has dropped by during normal open-for-business hours, the lights have been out.

Abyssinia was a love or hate kind of joint– The type of place where you’d either be ecstatic at the prospect of becoming a regular, or dodge in fear of having to request a fork. (The standard utensils were rolls of injera, or Ethiopian sourdough flatbread).

Late night snacking: A guide to food on Thayer

You’re stumbling down Thayer at 1:45 a.m. on a Saturday night, and all you can think of is how you can get your hands on some snacks as fast as humanly possible. At this point, you’re essentially a young Jon Belushi dreaming of stuffing your face with everything within arms reach. If you didn’t get that reference, check out of your friend’s dorm room and there’s a 90% chance you’ll find out who he is. It’s a precarious quagmire to be in. You know it’s late and have fewer options, but you don’t want to wander all the way back up Thayer just to find out your favorite take-out restaurant is closed. Never fear, Blog is here to give you a comprehensive guide for your drunken late night snacking habits. Constraint: Everything closes at 2 a.m.

It’s some pretty solid Mexican food, cheaper than Chipotle, and has free guac! What could be better? Like its sibling further up Thayer, it usually comes with a long line, especially towards closing time. Top pick: Quesadilla with pulled pork and guac. Also, there’s no free water cups, keep that in mind if you’re in desperate need of hydration.


The All-American late night cafe named after Brown’s infamous (and not so real) professor Josiah Carberry. Although Jo’s is known for its spicy-with and fries, the real beauty here lies in its salads and quesadillas, although both of these aren’t always open towards the end of the night. Most students are pretty sure Jo’s only opens around midnight and is reserved for post-party gorging, yet unbeknownst to many, it actually opens at 6 p.m.
