B&D halai restaurant
Anyone ever eat B&D halai restaurant(African cuisine[probably West African/maybe Guinean could be wrong] on 29th st between 6th ave and 7th ave. I ate there on Friday night and I thought it was interesting(Buffet style)[$5.99 per pound). I had a little bit of fish/lamb/rice/chicken/vegetables/other meats/rice. Thought it was quite interesting although I made the mistake picking out foods with too many bones(increased the weight and the price of the food). I recommend their homemade sorrel.
But in fact you're right: The chef is Guinean. Good-sized, good-looking steam table seems to get a lot of patronage from the West African guys who work at the garment businesses nearby. I've tried only a couple of things so far, jsilver227, but I can tell you that the potato-leaf sauce is light on bones (both fish and goat), and the kidneys contain no bones at all. Will sample further.
