Apparently, going to Frederick for NY Eve dinner didn't appeal to many
Unless there's a big outcry of support for The Orchard in Frederick
(very friendly to herbivores), I'm going to suggest a new idea: Dukem,
an Ethiopian place in Baltimore on Maryland Ave at Chase. Website here
http://www.dukemrestaurant.com/index2.html and parking is nearby.
If you've never had Ethiopian, the food has some Indian influences, and
is dominated by variously spicy dishes (some mild, some not) of split
peas, lentils, carrots, greens, potatoes, cabbage, served family style
on injera, a crepe made of teff flour. Each person also has their own
injera, which are torn and used to scoop (by hand) from the main
plate. (It's useful to know exactly with whom you are dining. :-) )
All veg dishes are vegan (even though butter is mentioned on the website).
We could meet there at 6 or 7pm.
Please RSVP by Dec 20 with the number of seats to be reserved, and
whether you need a ride/can drive.
