Queen Makeda or other Ethiopian?
I'm seriously craving some Ethiopian tonight but want to try something other than Etete and Dukem, both of which I love. Thinking Queen Makeda. Thoughts?

Steve -- sorry for the delayed review. I am SO glad I went to Queen Makeda. Environment was absolutely perfect. I have a hectic job and all I wanted on Friday was a quiet place, a cold beer and good food. Got it all at QM. We ordered the lamb tibs (I wanted the beef, but my boyfriend really was in the mood for lamb) and the veggie combo. The tibs was pretty standard, but my goodness, those veggies were outstanding. I'm STILL thinking about the red lentils. I was disappointed, though, when we ordered some kitfo later in the meal and our waitress told us a few minutes later that the kitchen was out. Other than that, total perfection. Above anything else, you just couldn't beat the atmosphere. Thanks for the rec!
