2024 Best West African Restaurant

Suya Joint

Cecelia Lizotte, a 2024 James Beard Award semifinalist, is busy expanding Suya Joint to Providence this year. But lucky for us, the bustling West African
restaurant continues to wow crowds in
Nubian Square, showcasing cuisine from
Nigeria and the broader region. Start your
meal with the namesake suya — spiced
grilled beef skewers — but save room for
a heaping portion of the Nigerian stew
egusi, made from ground pumpkin seeds
and spinach.
