Report: Ethiopian restaurant in the works for Avenue B

Fu Sushi closed on Avenue B between East 11th Street and East 12th Street last August.

The Post reported yesterday that a new Ethiopian restaurant is set to take this space in the coming weeks. The place is called Haile Ethiopian Bistro, and owned by Menasie Haile and Gemada Hiwot.

The Post also noted that Prime & Beyond, the steakhouse at 90 E. 10th St. between Third Avenue and Fourth Avenue, is leaving to be closer to the Lincoln Tunnel and its New Jersey location. Prime opened in July 2011... The restaurant never seemed all that busy when we walked by... Did you ever try it?

Damn, Prime & Beyond was unbelievable. It'll be missed.

I think I tried Prime and Beyond, good, and a good value relative to other steak places.

Fu Sushi had nice food but it was very loud and the lighting was terrible.

Prime & Beyond's success was probably hampered by the fact that it looks like a real estate office.

The Ethiopian food at Meskel on E 3RD is excellent and the owners are very nice... but there are never many people in there - I wonder if people will go to this new one.
