Cafe Rue Dix is where you should meet friends for dinner and drinks before a night out in the neighborhood. This French-Senegalese spot is covered in West African masks, the bar is painted with geometric patterns that look like Senegalese textiles, and loud afrobeat music is always playing. Try to sit still while you order the beef mafe (peanut stew) or a whole branzino.
