In Downtown Charleston, you won’t find much African food, let alone anything that comes close to the quality of Bintü Atelier. This is one of the newer restaurants on the East Side, and they cook classics you’d find throughout Africa, including Senegal’s national dish of fish over rice thiéboudieun. The menu constantly rotates, but you can’t go wrong with anything involving grains, whether that’s a side of jollof rice or a heaping plate of peanutty chicken mafe stew over broken rice. Don’t be surprised if you end up talking with the staff about all the regional cuisines they're repping while hanging out and drinking sorrel tea in the casual space.
