“If you can’t travel to the motherland, Joloff Restaurant is the next best thing” – Essence Magazine. And we agree. Joloff Restaurant in Bedford-Stuyvesant is truly a taste of Senagalese food and tradition. The playful textile patterns on the tables and contemporary African sculpture and prints immerse patrons in the heart of West African art. For a second, it is as though we too become art. Such depth and dedication is continued through the careful homestyle cooking with entrees like mafe yapp (lamb in peanut sauce), yassa yapp (lamb in lemon and onion marinade), the beignets (a dessert), and bissap (sorrel). Being here is so much more than going for dinner with family or friends – it is a full cultural experience of joy. Asé.
