Best South African (2011)


Of the three South African restaurants in town, Braai is the one with the broadest menu. Although nominally a barbecue joint, Braai's bill of fare also runs to biryanis (demonstrating Indian influences on the cuisine), prawns piri-piri (a fiery Angolan dish), sliders (this is New York, after all), and tribal porridges, in addition to the Boer dried meats, and oddball ostrich and mutton. A big plus is a wine list showcasing many unfamiliar South African vintages. The decor is rough-hewn, in a yawn-worthy sort of way. 329 West 51st Street, 212-315-3315, (10018)
