Joloff Restaurant

Joloff’s owner, Papa Diagne, who was born and raised in Dakar, hews to tradition when he cooks cheb, simmering root vegetables, and then meaty bluefish stuffed with a paste of garlic, chiles, and parsley, in a tomato-based broth. He uses this flavor-infused liquid to cook broken rice, which takes on a brilliant orange-red tint and becomes tremendously savory.

Love this place for the quality and deliciousness of their Senegalese menu and their friendly service. This cuisine combines the best of African and French ingredients and cooking techniques. Do yourself a favor and try the signature jolloff rice or my favorite the chicken or fish yassa, braised in a lemon and onion sauce that is out of this world good!
