From the chef behind Aquavit, M55's a bi-level MePa joint ritzed out in every flavor of Africana: an adobe-thatch bar, sheer curtains screenprinted w/ images of African notables, and handmade wooden tables etched with proverbs, like "When God cooks, there's no smoke", and "When Bono visits, there's no laughter".
