Ethiopian Cuisine at the Empress Taytu

Let's meetup at the Empress Taytu on the East side for outstanding Ethiopian cuisine. It's always a fantastic meal and a great time.

PLEASE do not use heavy perfumes or fragrances when attending our meetups. Guys, this can mean you, too, with after shave or cologne. They can trigger migraines and aggravate asthma. Let's save our sense of smell for the enticing aromas at the restuarant.

If you have never enjoyed Ethiopian food before, it is wonderfully delicious and one of the most ancient cuisines on the planet. It is NOT hot! Even if you ask for hot sauce, theirs is more flavorful than warming.

The restaurant's decor and aromas will transport you to the fertile crescent from the moment you arrive.

Here is a link with more information, though it's not the restaurant's own web site, they don't have one how's that for off the grid and home-spun? http://www.ethiopianrestaurant.com/ohio/empress_tayitu.html

Since it will be a Saturday night in the big city, suggestions for things to do after are always welcomed, same for suggestions for future meetups.

If you bring a guest, spouse, etc, who is not veg, have them refrain from ordering meat. Not everyone wants to see it or smell it, and, after all, it is a veg meetup.

Please make sure to change your attending status if you decide not to attend. It is a fairness issue with the restaurant.

Also, the meetup site tracks members' 'no shows' and I don't know what happens when you reach a certain number, but it's probably not good. So don't be a no show.

your humble assistant organizer, Don

    My first time at Empress Taytu and it was delicious. I had some of my leftovers for breakfast! I enjoyed meeting new people and getting to know those familiar through interesting conversation. I continue to work at taking better photos!

    I had a wonderful time, as usual. Great food. Could have done without the incense.

    Hope you are feeling up to coming, Helene!
    Also, for those that have been here before...is there parking in the lot next to the building? In the photo, the gate seems to be closed. I also see a lot that is across the street.
