Nigerian food to replace NGONI senegalese?

So far I haven't found it. As I posted below NGONI used to make me cry but I fear its gone, or at least not in phone book.
So tonight I went to Obaa Koryoe 3143 Broadway around 122nd st north of Columbia. This is my turf, its where I was brought up. But Obaa is no replacement for NGONI. As an anthropologist, it was very interesting. The food appeared to be extremely authentic. I would suggest anyone in the neighborhood go, and try many of the things there. But the meat had not been allowed to permeate with the wonderful sauces. The fufu was very good for mashed manioc, but...I should have tried their Jollof rice (which at NGONI was good enough for God). The beer was really excellent I thought. A microbrew called ADDIS. apparently brewed here with Ethopian incredients. It was really full bodied and rich. If someone knows the whereabouts of really good West African restuarants in NY, please let me know.
