A friend is planning to have a birthday dinner and she is considering restaurants on Baldwin. She is looking for something moderately priced (under $50 per person), interesting like Ethiopian (even though she doesn't know what that type of cuisine is) and no North American cusine. She also wants to sit out on a patio if the weather is nice. I took her to Pomegranate last year and she really enjoyed that.
She has asked me for suggestions on Baldwin but I haven't been there for ages (ever since I heard Yung Sing is gone), so have no clue as to what has closed, what has opened up and most importantly, what's GOOD. Last I recall, most of the restos on that stretch were Asian (Chinese, Japanese, Malaysian) or French / Italian.
Doing a quick search, I found this old thread: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/564394 but nothing recent.
