African restaurants near BAM?

In looking at past discussions about where to eat near BAM, there were a couple references to a Senegalese restaurant called Keur N'Dye. But I couldn't find any further discussion of the food. Anyone been there recently? Or is it better to take a long walk to Joloff? Going to BAM tonight and would like to check out one of these places after the performance.

  1. Also add Madiba to your mix, which is solid South African food just a short walk away.

    1. Keur N'Dye is either closed or closing.

      1. Madiba is a fun place but their food is only OK, and not particularly authentic (although I think that is mostly a function of sourcing ingredients). It is also pretty expensive for what it is even if not very expensive relative to some other restaurants. A much better bet for good african influenced food but with classically trained french underpinnings can be found at Abistro:

        Very friendly couple runs the place and it is BYOB

          Second abistro. It's not far from BAM and a really different and delicious place. You can pick up a bottle of wine at the greene grape nearby.
