Traveling the globe in an epicurean quest to discover rare, exotic foods sounds like the adventure of a lifetime, but the jungle is notorious for barely even getting an "E" signal, and you can totally forget about 3G! Get that outlandish grub while still streaming your Pandora, at Safari, taking reservations now.
A sophomore endeavor from two former UK investment bankers eager to turn a popular London trend and passion for big-game hunting into US culinary controversy, Safari is an underground, not-quite-legal, exclusively bush meat supper club serving up in a dimly lit, heavily wooded hunting lodge-esque 10-table basement dining room replete with reclaimed beams from a real Namibian lodge, decorative palm fronds, rare Indian rosewood tables, and large mounted animal heads, including one of a genuine African hippo, though it'll be you that is hungry, hungry. For the less adventurous, they've got adapted North American grub like a tortoise belly stew in a ground nut sauce over jasmine rice, wok-seared porcupine legs (cashew, callaloo, ginger and coriander rice), and an Eastern cougar fricassee in a dark Cajun roux with seared bell peppers, deep fried okra, and a painful track record of getting burned by young dudes it meets at Jurys. If you want to be welcomed to the jungle, there's seared, port/juniper-sauced zebra loin with sour green mango soba noodles; sliced, peppercorn-encrusted elephant tenderloin with an Indonesian rendang curry and toasted coconut rice; and a black eyed pea, pili-pili ho-ho sauced free range chimp steak that's been "net trapped", like Sandra Bullock by the Internet terrorist group, the Praetorians!
If you're not bold enough for an entree, Safari also cooks up small plates like black bear carpaccio w/ ginger bread crouton and cashew nuts, braised Egyptian camel tongue, and giraffe skewers with peanut satay, to accompany a solid selection of hard-to-find dark brews like Kilikia Dark Armenian and 11% ABV Xingu Black Beer, setting you up for another adventure of a lifetime: figuring out how to get home.
