Local restaurant - Nefetari's

Nefetari's Restaurant was the location for my friends Birthday dinner. Her husband called ahead and reserved the Queens table (more on that below). Per Nefetari's website:
 "Nefetari’s Fine Cuisine & Spirits is the fulfillment of a lifelong dream to provide Tallahassee with an extraordinary dining and entertainment experience. We are committed to improving the health of our guests and the planet by serving fresh, organic, farm-to-table culinary creations.

When you enter the website, it has unique and interesting decor.... They were quick to take our coat, confirm our reservation and show us to our table. 
As I mentioned above, the Queens table had been reserved for us. It is complete with two thrones at each in. Both are intricate in detail, and the table is set for a feast. Also at the table were welcoming drinks, candles, flowers, etc. It was truly an experience.

We started out with appetizers. Seen below are Samosas - Two Indian pastries filled with potatoes and peas, served with chutneys.We also had Chef Steven’s zesty Mediterranean hummus served with crisp, organic vegan tortilla chips or naan chips. which was also delightful.
For dinner we had
Athena's Nachos - Our specialty nachos made with seasoned ground lamb or jerk chicken, tomatoes, scallions, crumbled feta cheese, Kalamata olives, Greek yogurt and our secret blend of spices, served on naan chips.
The Ethiopian Stew  was a favorite with 3 at our table ordering. (1 with Lamb, 1 with tofu and  another with Chicken) Traditional stew with finely chopped vegetables and organic lentils, seasoned with berbere spice, served on injera with your choice of two sides. This dish was also an experience, as they provided wet cloths to cleanse your hands prior to eating.
  
After dinner we had an amazing lemon coconut cake created by the pastry chef.
The cake was a hit at the table.Being that I am not a big fan of coconut, I opt'd for the vanilla ice cream. It was the perfect way to end the amazing dinner.

Not pictured C tried their homemade cheesecake, and it was truly amazing
And the best part the chef and owner came out to introduce herself, and wish JSBH a Happy bday!
