Location Description:

Bamboo lines the ceiling and driftwood collected along the Hudson River bank is scattered around Braai. From the same folks who own Xai Xai Wine Bar down the street, the Hell's Kitchen restaurant specializes in South African barbecue. Skewers of ostrich, venison, and mutton are covered in traditional spices from Cape Malay. The recipe for Chakalaka, a vegetable relish, comes straight from Johannesburg and curried chutneys grace a few of the meaty plates. The malva pudding, a sponge cake in a puddle of pastry cream with vanilla ice cream, is not to be skipped for dessert. --Jessica Goodman
