About this Business
From Our Editors
For African cuisine savored in a sophisticated, softly lit environment, diners head to Charcol Restaurant & Grill. Candles flicker, tossing light onto rust-hued tabletops, apricot walls, and warm, hardwood flooring. Meanwhile, servers make their way through the room with fragrant, steaming platters in tow. Appetizers include wings dredged in a top-secret spice blend, as well as flaky samosas clasping beef, fish, chicken, or nesting dolls. When it's time for the main course, forks delve into slow-roasted whole fish and spoons careen through egusi soup––which pairs ground melon seed with crayfish––and a bed of jollof rice hosts plantains and stir fry goat.
