Edmonton RROTM - February discussion

Last months L2Grill was not as popular as past reviews. I ended up being out of town for most of Dec & Jan so have not been to the last 2 RROTM.

here is the list from last month:

The Bothy
Guru
Furasato
Habesha
Irie

if there are no new suggestions, then I will just throw these into the randomizer and choose from there.

    I vote for Habesha or The Bothy. I think they are more in the price range of chowhounds than L2 grill. I pray to the Food Gods/(esses) that Habesha has faster service than Langano Skies

      Bryn,

      The service at Habesha is about 10% faster in my opinion. Every Ethiopian restaurant I've ever been to is slow. Sorry.

      Never made it to L2 despite good intentions to do so. I am REALLY looking forward to trying the Bothy having met the owners at ...Indulgence I think....before it opened. Is it open to minors? I think not - but I am not sure. That fact could affect who will try it out as at least some of us chowhounds like our kids enough to feed them well :-)

      I have been to Habesha and Irie (many times in the old location...new one on Whyte was not open ten days ago when I drove by) already but will delay my comments until month end if either is chosen. I suggest we not do Irie until we know the new location is open.

      I don't like Furasato and have said so on this board. My opinion is not shared universally.

      From this stream of conciousness, I am drawn to the Bothy and it gets my vote. it is new, it is different and it has really good booze. ...I shall say no more.

        I would love to go to the bothy. If this is a good indication, then I say skip the randomizer and lets do it!

          Sounds good to me, although I'd still like to hit up one of the city's Ethiopian restaurants during our adventures here.

        Maybe we can schedule Habesha for April? (I will be away in March and I don't want to miss it!)
