The food at this romantic Senegalese restaurant is anything but: The kitchen puts a French twist on the indigenous treasures of Senegal. Beef and shrimp spring rolls come alive with a flamboyant sweet-chili garlic sauce; smoked-oyster rice harks back to the owner’s native Casamance region. The ambience evokes a Moroccan harem: pralines-and-cream-colored walls and fertility sculptures. If those don’t put you in the mood, the tasty desserts will.
