Why so few mentions? Very pleasing, grown up space -- brick, low lighting -- and very tasty Nigerian food served by friendly folk. I'm not best-suited for the cuisine, since I'm not a big fan of the dried fish that are an important counterpoint to the different sauces. But had an excellent spicy meal -- hearty portion of a chicken and palm oil stew, perfectly cooked, the goat-pepper soup (very large bowl, very meaty indeed), and a leaf-sauce with the fufu. Tab was about $31 for two (with 2 beers and a cocktail). Recommend.

    Agreed! In fact, thanks to this post and to Sietsema's review in the Voice, we went ahead and covered it for the CHOW.com segment that runs on New York. Thanks for the tip, Mary! Here it is, if you're curious:

      Also agreed! Had a great meal there on Sunday. WIth a party of four we had several "appetizers" dodo, a meat pie (which was fabulous), jollof rice, moi moi, a spicy-ish chicken dish with fufu, a side of okra, a fried jumbo shrimp. Everything was delicious and the service was great.
