Subject: Perfect steak dinner for boyfriend’s birthday

Message: Hello Nosa & Folly,

I really need help finding the perfect steak restaurant to take my boyfriend for his birthday.

He is a major foodie, and I’d like to ‘wow’ him with somewhere he hasn’t tried.

I heard there’s a great steak place on the Eko hotel street. But I can’t seem to find it.

I would really appreciate if you could give me the details of the said restaurant on the same street as Eko hotel, or any other great options for a perfect steak dinner.

FOLLY: The restaurant you're looking for is 1415 Signature. It's actually in Eko Signature which is inside Eko Hotel so that's probably why you can't find it on the street. Nosa and I went for his birthday earlier this year, and the steak as you've been told might be the best we've had in Lagos. 

NOSA: Or Talindo? Talindo isn't on Eko Hotel road but it's pretty close

Hi guys,

My name is ... and I turn 21 in a week. I want to throw a small lunch /dinner party (not certain which) and I thought to get your opinion. I want a place that’s great but easy on the pocket and somewhere I can get a menu to cater for adventurous and the not so adventurous guests.
I really would appreciate if you can help me.
Keep up the good work by the way.

Best Wishes

FOLLY: I think Bistro 7 might be what you're looking for.

NOSA: Adventurous and not-so-adventurous? Maybe not Bistro 7 sef. Crust & Cream is as safe as it gets.
