The Blue Nile has a fair selection of vegetarian dishes, most of which are stew-like and are served with injera, a crepe-like flat bread that is spongy. Reviewers' overall impression of Blue Nile was mediocre, with comments such as "very slow service" and "rather small portions of the main dish." However, there is an ongoing supply of injera, and the food is very tasty. The atmosphere could use some help...it needs some decorations.
