Abol Bunna Ethiopian restaurant in Tampa closes

Guess that Restaurant.com gift certificate I recently purchased is null and void.  I was just there with the International Friends Meetup group and we enjoyed the food and service.  Sluggish economy + sluggish summer= another one bites the dust.

Here's the email I received tonight:


We want to thank you for your continued patronage and support of our business and sadly advise that due to the recession that is taking its toll on many small businesses, Abol Bunna Ethiopian Restaurant has closed its door.  The food costs went up by more than 20 percent and a sluggish economy took its toll. We are happy to have served you well in the past and we look forward to continue to provide your catering needs in the future.

We thank you for your patronage and your love.

Azeb and Teddy
