Back in 2018 we posted some scuttlebutt about the excellent Ethiopian Restaurant CherCher had signed a lease on 14th Street Uptown. I had forgotten all about it but amazingly it’s still happening!

A recent liquor license application says:

“A restaurant that will serve Ethiopian, American, Italian, and Latin Foods with 62 seats and a Total Occupancy Load of 75. Sidewalk Café with 26 seats.”

Stay tuned.

“Dear PoPville,

They closed in March and I was worried that they had decided to close permanently, so I was hoping you could publicize their reopening! They serve very tasty Ethiopian food, and while their stellar cocktails aren’t on their takeout menu, they do have wine and beer. Here’s their website.”
