Ooh la la! Mark your calendars.

Here in Senegal, three restaurants have chosen to meet the challenge of this global event under the banners of sharing and conviviality.

Dakar’s participating restaurants:
Le Cozy – Chef Mohamed Haidar (see menu below)
Le Terrou Bi – Chef Stéphane Loquin

And in Mbour:
Allo Chef ô Mille Délices – Chef Amy Ndiaye

While each of the chefs in these establishments will develop and offer a menu « à la française » made ​​from fresh seasonal products from the local terroir, they are also free to include elements of their own cultural cuisines.

The menu « à la française » will include a traditional French apéritif, a cold starter, a hot starter, a fish or seafood course, a meat/poultry course, a French cheese or selection of cheeses, a chocolate dessert, French wines and digestif. The price for the menu is at the discretion of the restaurant and each one is encouraged to donate 5% of sales to a local NGO working towards respect and health of the environment.
