On Monday nights at Lenox Sapphire, you can get $5 flavored martinis and there’s a live DJ playing music loud enough for a festival. This is just one example of how hard this American and West African restaurant parties. There are events and specials throughout the week, so you should look at their schedule ahead of time to see what’s going on. Bring some friends who don’t mind screaming over the music to talk and order the beef nems (fried spring rolls) - they’re crispy and great.
