Chances are, most New Yorkers haven't had the chance to try the cuisine at an African restaurant outside of Ethiopian restaurants, if at all. But luckily for foodies looking to expand their epicurean horizons, the city is home to restaurants that reflect some of the diversity of the second-largest continent in the world. You might recognize some common elements of Middle Eastern restaurants’ dishes when it comes to Northern African fare or notice the French influence on food from formerly occupied countries of West Africa. But the more you explore, the more you might find yourself craving comfort food dishes in the form of injera, tagine or fufu.
