I don't know if you've been following James Norton's new weekly column in City Pages (I guess his main column is in the print edition, but he's got some interesting stuff online-only, too; like a review of the garlic zoom! which I bought based on his review and am enjoying, thank you), but he's really been getting out there and trying some places few of the other critics have written about. This week's column is about an East African place on Lake Street that's always intrigued me. http://articles.citypages.com/2008-03... Sounds pretty interesting, actually. Mr. Norton mentions that his wife dined with him, which I found encouraging as I've been reluctant to try some of these East African places ever since I long ago I heard about one where men and women had to dine separately. Don't even remember the name of place, actually, or know if it's even still open.
Anyway, has anyone else been to this place Qoraxlow? Is it a place a woman dining alone might feel comfortable? Very curious.
