Buka is a casual Nigerian restaurant in Clinton Hill that’s open late. It’s lively and affordable, and it’s great place to come with a group. Just stop by, get some beers, and order a bunch of stuff for the table - things like goat stew, Nigerian doughnuts, or red snapper with a side of fufu (which is a large ball of dough made from cassava). Although if you’re feeling adventurous, you could always get the African land snail. Either way, try to get seated at the table they have inside of an old VW van. It’s cheesy, but not every restaurant has an old van, and you should go for it.

We’d love Locanda Vini e Olii if we lived down the street. But when it comes to traveling this far for dinner, there are probably other restaurants in the area that we’d rather be.

Think of No. 7 as a really nice pub that happens to have a big dining room in the back. If you live in Fort Greene, it’s a good second-date option.
