African food, though there are pockets with a lot of good restaurants, is relatively uncommon in America. Beyond that, most African restaurants in the US feature Ethiopian or Mahgreb cuisine (which are both delicious). However, the eaters wanted to see if we could try some different African regional cuisines. Luckily both the New York Times and the Chicago Reader have made lists of the African restaurants in NYC and Chicago. In terms of places off the beaten path, NYC boast a South African restaurant, Madiba, (195 DeKalb Avenue, Fort Greene, Brooklyn). While Chicago is dominated by Ethiopian, there is also an all Ghanaian restaurant, Palace Gate (4548 N. Magnolia).
