Village Voice's Description

One of the cityas friendliest West African restaurants, Florenceas features the fare of both Ghana and the Ivory Coast. From the former choose a mash such as banku (fermented manioc meal), yam fufu, or cocoyam fuotou, then match it with a soup like okra, spinach, or egusi (crushed melon seeds, resembling scrambled eggs). Then add a meat or fish selection, and your meal is fully assembled. From the Ivory Coast pick the national dish of braised fish with attieke, a manioc meal stodge.
