Fodor's Review

The only trouble with hitting this delightful South African sanctuary is developing an addiction to ostrich carpaccio. That ostrich dish is joined by other favorite munchies from the Transvaal, not to mention nearly 100 different wines from Capetown, Jo'burg, and everywhere in between. Xai Xai also sports foresty decor and one of Manhattan's liveliest hosts. Also, just in case you'd like to sample some wines from beyond South Africa, look no further than Vintage, a wine bar right across 9th Avenue. The only problem with Vintage? No ostrich carpaccio.
