I'll be in Portland for a convention next week and have been looking at recommendations in previous posts. The Blue Nile Ethiopian restaurant has gotten some favorable mentions, but when I looked on the web it looks like it might be closed? Anyone been there recently?
I'm looking for a spot to take two graduate students as a mentor/mentee pairing for dinner one night. Looking for reasonably close and not too expensive. Thinking either Karam, or possibly Biwa (but that could get more expensive than I'd like), if the Blue Nile is closed. Other thoughts?
