7 Square

Posted Wednesday, 31 October 2018

What is striking when entering 7 Square is not simply the tastefully decorated, large indoor/outdoor space that has light flooding in all day; nor is it the palm tree protruding through the middle of the restaurant, intentionally preserved to retain the indoor/outdoor feel; and it’s not even the large, green outdoor area flowing seamlessly into the indoors that can be used for a multitude of events and occasions. What is most striking is the oversized area dedicated to grilling. This space defines 7 Square as masters of the grill; not to overlook that sharing this space is their dedicated wood-fired pizza oven, where fresh authentic pizzas cook to a crispy perfection.

Number 7, Musa Yar’adua is home to the newest addition to the Lagos restaurant scene. Although their grilling station is larger than life, their menu is a compilation of all time favorites, from burgers and sandwiches to more sophisticated options, like a generous platter of all your favorite bites perfect for sharing and a healthy citrus and seafood salad enjoyed while catching up with friends over a light lunch.

The vast selection means you can try something new every time you visit them, just an excuse to keep going back for more. Impress a client with juicy skewers of imported beef, presented vertically to showcase the meat in all its glory, with grilled vegetables adding color to the already impressive dish, and a side of mushroom sauce. Take the family out for pizza, where you can watch pizza being made fresh and cooked for that perfect crust. With a variety of toppings to entice you, you can’t go wrong with pizza. But if you’ve been looking for that perfect Philly Cheesesteak sandwich, with thinly sliced steak, a special sauce, cheddar cheese, mushrooms and sliced yellow and green bell peppers in a soft sesame bread, every bite is delightful.

Looking to impress your date with a dish that ticks all the boxes? The Seafood Pasta is grandiose, with generous portions of fresh crab and calamari in a rich tomato sauce, topped with basil, delicate shavings of Parmesan cheese and a majestic jumbo prawn, a crown on a regal dish.

Their cocktails are as exciting as their food. The 7 Square Style is perfectly refreshing on that hot Lagos day, with gin infused with rosemary, lemon juice, and agave syrup and white wine. The dramatic Zombie, presented in a skull-shaped glass, in case you forget the name, is a mix of white and dark rum, fresh orange and pineapple juice, grenadine, and apricot liqueur. Even their mocktails are showstoppers.

If you want to see the grill in its full glory, all the action is on Friday nights for their live barbeque nights. Choose from a variety of mouthwatering meats and watch them grilled exactly the way you like. On a Wednesday night, enjoy the outdoors with their live band and a shisha. And on Sundays, their extravagant buffet spread for their Sunday Brunch will leave you lost for choice.

Whatever the day, the mood or occasion, 7 Square is ready to take care of you. They want to celebrate every occasion with you. They want to share special moments and create new memories. But most of all they want you to enjoy every moment of your meal with them.
