    "Time Out New York" just did a one-pager on Ghana: http://www.timeout.com/newyork/articles/own-this-city/72066/ghana
    Also, if you don't want to go up to the Bronx, there's a delicious restaurant that has foods from the Ivory Coast and Guinea (not countries you mentioned, but definitely West African). It's called Akwaba: http://www.urbanspoon.com/r/3/20678/r...
