La Savane is a go-to spot in Harlem for casual West African food in a cozy dining room that tends to stay busy. Here, you’ll eat things like grilled fish, lamb shanks, plantains, and couscous, and the portion sizes tend to be pretty large. So bring a few friends, and share some things, or stop by with your parents if everyone wants to eat something a little more interesting.
