La Savane: "In truth, La Savane offers a kind of pan-African cuisine, thanks to a rotation of women from Côte d’Ivoire, Guinea, Mali, and even Senegal who have overseen the kitchen. But the murals on the wall—of thatched-roofed huts and villagers tending a giant cauldron—were painted by an artist from Côte d’Ivoire, and some dishes represent that country distinctly."
