Goree is a great Senegalese restaurant on the border of Kenwood and Hyde Park. At lunch you can order one of their fantastic stews (our favorite is the maffe made with lamb, peanut butter, and yucca), and their entrees (like grilled red snapper or dibi chicken) are available all day. Portions are large, so come with a group and plan on sharing everything.
