The West African snack shack called Kuti's at 355 West 116th has had great reviews for its quality ingredients and affordable prices but apparently has not been opened recently. A Bespoke reader mentioned that that eatery just around the corner from Morningside Park has been shutter for over a week now and wanted to know if anyone had any updates on this local shop? Kuti's is sort of a hole-in-the-wall type of establishment with cheap offerings but in a good way so it would be a shame if it shutters.
