MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

For excellent pan-African cuisine, head to this beloved West Village service counter. There are only a handful of seats, but with colorful accent pillows and decorative baskets hanging on the walls, the mood is upbeat. Owner Diana Tandia hails from Mauritius, but her menu spans the Caribbean, Nigeria, and even France.

Street food snacks and popular bowls layering the likes of richly spiced jerk chicken or berber beef over grains and vegetables are quick hits. But, if you’re seeking a dish to savor, order the four-hour roasted lamb. It’s worthy of a fine-dining operation and hints at Chef Tandia’s time at Per Se among other top kitchens.

Just one dessert is made daily and sells out quickly. If it’s the decadent apple galette, get it before it’s gone.
