Restaurant Details

After a fire closed Lakeview's Bolat African Cuisine, it reopened with a bright new look and a new menu of cocktails and gussied-up African food. West African fufu, a paste made of root vegetables, is topped with a griddled scallop and plug of spinach simmered with stockfish, a centuries-old form of dried unsalted seafood. Classic carryovers from the previous menu include jollof rice; egusi, a mucilaginous broth of ground seeds; and delectable curry goat, chewy chunks of meat in rice flecked with spices and explosively flavorful onions and sweet pepper. Berber rack of lamb, the most expensive item, was a terrific value: eight perfectly prepared chops, pink inside and crusty outside, lightly dressed with a complex sauce of chiles, cumin, and cardamom that balances the richness of the lamb.
