Meskerem is a West Village Ethiopian restaurant located on MacDougal Street in the heart of NYU’s main campus.  It offers a very inexpensive and tasty vegetarian combo special at lunch ($10 + tip weekday, a bit more on the weekend).

Lunch time visits tend to be less crowded.  While the background music was a bit louder than we would have liked, it was more than manageable and always interesting.   Service is relaxed but attentive.   Expect a louder space in the evening.
