The Joloff Restaurant 20th Anniversary Celebration is a testament to family and community.
Just as quality ingredients are the foundation for the consistently outstanding Joloff menu, so to the "ingredients" for this successful business include the Diagne family and the community.
For two decades Joloff has ensured its sustainability in an often "rocky" economic environment which has seen the closures of many eating establishments. Joloffs was a harbinger of "Brooklyn cool", reflective of the diverse Brooklyn community. An ever-growing customer base of performing and visual artists, writers, community leaders, elected officials, and importantly neighborhood folks, continues to give testimony to the universal appeal of the cuisine, and importantly, the gracious and hard-working staff.
The 20th Anniversary Celebration is an opportunity to salute the entrepreneurial spirit of the Diagne family and to acknowledge its commitment to the community in a festive atmosphere.
The night will include performances by International sensation; Wunmi, Lyrisict, Activist and founder of "Rhyme Like A Girl"; Toni Blackman. Along with a unique dining experience and the sounds of world renowned, Brooklyn's own DJ Spinna.
When & Where
The Diagne Family
After almost 20 years serving the community, we have taken a significant part in transforming our restaurant and environment into a "Taste of Senegal." Each of our customers have the opportunity to join in at our table as family and fest in our traditional dishes.
At Joloff, we understand the value of a healthy lifestyle and wholesome food. Originally, the recipes of Joloff Restaurant were developed in order to feed Papa's Rastafarian friends, who were all vegetarians. As his popularity grew in the catering business, Papa realized that there is a huge need for vegetarian food, especially in Brooklyn. Therefore, our menu also features an assortment of vegetarian and vegan options to support all of our customers needs.
Joloff has become a home to all people, of all traditions! Since 1995, Joloff Restaurant has been supported by the local community and many those who have been regulars and event hosts at Joloff include: Sizzla, AKON, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, Eryka Badu, M1, Kevin Powel, Isac Debancole.
