Meskel Ethiopian Restaurant has not been open lately

Several readers have noted that the unassuming little restaurant at 199 E. Third St. just west of Avenue B hasn't been open the past week-plus.

Calls to the restaurant turn up a temporarily disconnected number.

Perhaps they are on a summer hiatus or closed for renovations. {Updated: Check the comments — several commenters say they will reopen after renovations.)


  1. They are closed for renovations for a few months and will reopen in 3 months.

  2. They're going to reopen in 2 months are closed for renovation.

  3. I'm glad of that; Ethiopian is one of the best cuisines around. I look forward to their reopening.

  4. They'll never re-open. Temporary is always permanent.
