About Chef Hibist Legesse

An Addis Abeba Native, now New Yorker, Hibist Legesse moved to the US in her teenage years. The lack of restaurants that served authentic Ethiopian foods in those days gave her inspiration to open an Ethiopian restaurant. Many years later that inspiration resulted in the birth of Bati. Hibist takes pride in successfully finding ways to give Ethiopian dishes a simpler and healthier flair. She aspires to change the misconception of Ethiopian food being a ceremonial food. Hibist has implemented small yet vital details into the cuisine to create a day-to-day meal to the western audience of Bati. Undoubtedly, Fort Greene can expect more than traditional Ethiopian food from this Addis girl.
