Citi Grill has a couple small tables, but this West African spot in McGinley Square is best used as a delivery option when you want something with more complex spices than a plain slice with red pepper flakes. Our favorite dish is the salty, extremely tender michoui lamb that’s served on the bone with a side of plantains that melt when you bite into them. But no matter what you order, you’re going to get a lot of food for around $15.
