Dukem vs. Nazareth?
Okay folks, I've read AAAALL the threads, but I'm STILL confused.
Between Dukem and Nazareth, which is the better place for a party of 10-12 to have a nice Ethiopian birthday dinner?
I need your help in deciding!
I've been to both, and strongly prefer the food at Dukem. My friend disagrees with me completely and likes Nazareth much better. I think you'd probably have an easier time securing a reservation at Dukem: it's got more space and tends to be less crowded. Nazareth is smaller and it's generally packed.
I like Nazareth better overall, but I don't know how well they would accommodate such a large party. I find Nazareth warmer and friendlier, and could make for a wonderful birthday throwdown. Probably best to call and give them fair warning, but still prepare yourself for a wait. Fortunately, they are licensed and drinks are cheap...stick with beer, wine, and simple mixed drinks, and go martini crazy here!
Thanks! I talked to Nazareth on the phone just now and she says to 'remind' her again on the day of...which has me a bit worried. I'd hate to have to wait because it's a surprise party so ideally I'd like all of us to be seated before the b'day girl arrives.
Sounds like it could be a really cosy birthday party though!
