The owners of Bouillabaisse 126 switched things up in fall, renaming their restaurant Korhogo 126 and replacing its French menu with an African-inspired one. Many hounds approve.
“When you walk into the restaurant, the aromas are wonderful, a good sign. The food did not disappoint,” writes soupcommie, who found fresh seafood and sauces layered with flavor. Vegetable mafe au soumbala, a peanut stew with okra and eggplant, hits the mark, perstephanie says, and is served over a nice quinoa pilaf. Grilled prawns (pili pili) are plump, juicy, and nicely spiced, bobjbkln reports. And David B recommends steak tartare and scallops.
