Village Voice's Description

The flagship of the city's Senegalese fleet has moved across the street to fancier digs. Carry out from the window downstairs, or ascend the curving stairway to the glitzy dining room, which doubles as an alcohol-free nightclub and offers spectacular views of 116th Street from its cushy raised booths. Lunchtime, find Wolof standards like mafe (lamb or chicken with rich peanut sauce), cheb (African paella), and yassa (lemony chicken with mustard and caramelized onions). At dinner the menu bows toward France, with scrumptious lamb chops and grilled whole fish heading the menu.

    try it

  • The Corcoran Group on 11/04/11

    The food here is shockingly good, with large portions of lamb in a rich peanut sauce or chicken with couscous. Check out their $10 lunch specials too!

    Bomb - really good chicken

  • Ralph L. on 11/13/10

    Fish w/ onion sauce...do it.

  • Michael M. on 08/15/10

    Don't even bother with getting take out here. It's awful.
