Choosing the single best dish Senegalese dish in Harlem would require breakthroughs in data processing and decision fatigue. Since we can’t wait for science to catch up, we’ll say that it can’t get much better than the pintade with attieke at Chez Alain. The skin of the whole guineafowl is flaky and charred like the best bites of dark meat turkey, while the meat is as rich and salty as slow-cooked duck. Soak up the juices at the bottom of the plate with a side of attieke - slightly sour cassava with the texture of couscous, and chew on the bones like they’re chicken wings.
