Rafiki Bistro’s chef Jeff Burgess brings the culinary prowess he gleaned training in France, Italy, and New York to a new menu of Provençal country fare, using only fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Upon arrival, servers brandish fresh baguettes and a pureed chick pea dip, beckoning descending diners into the Prince Edward Island mussels’ fragrant lochs of white wine, charred spanish onion, and fresh jalapeño broth ($10). Shaved cheese and marinated tomatoes pepper a crispy eggplant starter ($11), priming palates for entrees that include seared scallops escorted by grapefruit salad and leeks melted by fire-breathing sous chefs ($22). Crafted by hand, gnocchi spheres ensconce tender dollops of goat cheese ($17), and red-currant sauce envelops a pan-seared duck breast fringed by potato croquet.
