I asked this question on the Manhattan board b/c I'm going soon, & got zero responses, so now I'm asking here b/c I'm just flat-out curious. I was asking for a place where I could get a well-made cocktail *and* good African food--of any type; don't care if it's Ethiopian, Moroccan or what.
I figure there's got to be at least 1 somewhere in this country! So, SFans, can you answer a Q that apparently stumped your East Coast counterparts (or rivals or brethren or whatever you prefer to call them)?

Bissap Baobab is a fun place. They have interesting drinks but it is usually crowded and noisy.
Rasselas is a nice place for Ethiopian. They have a bar, but I don't know how the mixed drinks are. They have live jazz too.
Lagosia in Berkeley. Excellent Nigerian food in charming setting with gracious service. No cocktails, but the wine list is respectable.
Or if you need a bar, Club Waziema has cocktails and Ethiopian food.
You'd probably get more responses if you cared about the differences among Moroccan, Ethiopian, or [rest of giant, diverse continent].
