Lagos Restaurant and Lounge
With spicy jollof rice, peppery suya, savory moimoi, and cocktails like “slay mama” and “wahala dey,” Lagos Restaurant and Lounge is bringing Nigeria to NYC. A cross between a Nigerian restaurant and a typical Lagos nightclub, Lagos locals testify that the lounge recalls the tastes, rhythm, and energy of their city. Here, soft blue light illuminates the tables, while a DJ plays an electrifying mix of afrobeats, centering the latest Nigerian hits. It’s not so much an escape from Manhattan as a celebration of the Black metropolitan creativity that’s the heart and soul of both Lagos and New York.
