About this Business
From Our Editors
Teranga is a word that communicates a combination of hospitality, camaraderie, and acceptance in Wolof, the Senegalese language of Dakar-born, Paris-educated Marco Senghor, who has worked to instill the notion of teranga in his Baobab Village bistro. His passion for French West African culture manifests in his menu’s list of fragrant curries, seasoned meats, and savory seafood dishes, all crafted from authentic Senegalese and Afro-Caribbean recipes. To complement spicy courses, bartenders handcraft artisan cocktails using ginger, hibiscus, and tamarind. At 10 p.m., the wait staff clears the tables and Baobab Village transforms into a West African dancehall complete with a DJ spinning West African, Congolese, reggae, Afro-Brazilian, and Latin music. Bringing teranga to Baobab Village is only part of Senghor’s mission. He describes the baobab tree as the social center of a village, a role his restaurant mirrors by hosting international musical performances and charitable events.
