    Wikipedia describes Eritrean cuisine as follows:
    Eritrean cuisine strongly resembles those of neighboring Ethiopia and Somalia, except for the fact that Eritrean and Somali cooking tend to feature more seafood than Ethiopian cuisine on account of their coastal locations. Eritrean dishes are also frequently "lighter" in texture than Ethiopian meals. They likewise tend to employ less seasoned butter and spices and more tomatoes, as in the tsebhi dorho delicacy. Additionally, owing to its colonial history, cuisine in Eritrea features more Ottoman and Italian influences than are present in Ethiopian cooking, including more pasta specials and greater use of curry powders and cumin. (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cuisine_of_Eritrea )

    Sounds delicious to me and I hope to you as well, if so, c'mon out and join your fellow Milepointers at Den Den Restaurant. Thanks to the the_happiness_store, who sniffed out and shared a menu (that looked delicious) at a recent dinner.

    All are welcome ! Please post to the thread if you can make it or are interested.

    one of the reasons I plan meetups on weekday nights is it is easy to accommodate more people, dinner is going on tonight so just c'mon out and join us.

    I wish I would have been a part of MilePoint when this posted...we went to the refugee camps on the border of Eritrea this summer, and I would have loved to have been a part of this before I went...maybe next time!

    There are no rules against having a DO in the same restaurant twice.

    no there certainly is not !
    I'll extend an invite to you (and any MPer visiting Chicago), if there is a certain restaurant/cuisine you'd like to have while in Chicago, as well as meet up with other MPers, let me know, more than happy to offer advice/post. And seeing as I live 3 miles north of ORD, you might even get a ride either to/from the airport & your dinner!

    I have a layover from 3-830 pm tomorrow in Chicago and have just emailed a friend about meeting for an early dinner near the airport. Thoughts?

    sorry Mike, I was offline the entire weekend (rare for me), your question brings up the need to start an ORD eats thread so that those in your position will have a resource.
