B&B Restaurant Restaurant Review

: This West African restaurant’s plain façade might not exactly beckon to hungry diners. But go ahead and step inside. If you’re a fan of international eating, B&B --- “B” is the first letter of the two owners’ last names --- is a find. Unless you’re a frequent traveler to a West African nation, the food here won’t be familiar, except for the very decent fried chicken. Served buffet-style, the cooking is quite reminiscent of Indian cuisine: saucy meats served over rice. One of the best dishes is the lamb meatballs bobbing in a rich peanut butter sauce. Also quite good are the curry items, particularly the lamb and goat varieties. Water is provided at every table, so unless you want soda, just bring your plate up to the cashier --- the price depends on how much you’ve piled up.
