In the last two months, there has been a ton of activity in the East African restaurant business on NE MLK. It's doubled, and there may well be more in store.
At the corner of NE Russell & Rodney is a new restaurant that it appears the Queen of Sheba folks are involved in. At least, when I chatted with them, they neither confirmed nor denied.
Selam Market, previously known as the only place to buy crack baggies for blocks around, is now a restaurant.
The cursed location formally known as Aunties' Kitchen is now Sengatera Ethiopian Restaurant.
And the former locale of Horn of Africa is Burqitu, a halal breakfast, lunch & dinner place.
All of the restaurants had heavy, home-made curtains in the windows. None of these have menus or hours posted, so for all I know, they aren't even open yet. But I'll be curious to hear what you think if you visit any of these.
