The Ascent Lanier’s Apartment is found in Blossom Hill, and so is the recipe you’ll need to steal; therefore, in the following guide, we’ll cover its location, and basically everything you need to know about The Recipe side-mission.
Before we start, let’s go over some general details and FAQs you may have.
The Recipe is a fetch side mission in The Ascent.
The recommended level for this side mission is 20, so you can start it when you enter Stimtown district on Tier Warrens but since the mission requires your presence in Blossom Hill, you’ll have to continue progressing the story (play main missions), until you get there.
For finishing this side mission you’ll get 38.000 XP and 10.000 Ucred.
Chef’s Hab is found in the northeastern part of Blossom Hill on Tier: Warrens.
The recipe is located in the Chef’s Hab or Lanier’s Apartment, on the second floor as explained below.
Sal Mon is found in Stimtown.
You should be able to spot him at a table, on the left side of an elevator.
You can see his location on the map below as well as his in-game position.
Where To Find Flamingo In The Ascent
Once you approach Sal Mon, your first objective is to find and talk to Flamingo.
Luckily for you, this quest takes place later in the game, and by the time you play it you most likely know how to call a cab.
So, take a taxi to Cluster 13, then walk to the objective marker on your map.
You’ll find Flamingo inside a small store like the one below.
Where To Find The Chef's Hab In Blossom Hill
After you talk to the Yoda-like NPC named Flamingo, the second objective is to get to Blossom Hill and find the Chef’s Hab.
This location is actually an apartment that belongs to a guy named Lanier.
If you already unlocked Blossom Hill, call another cab and travel there.
If Blossom Hill is uncharted, focus on the next main mission you have available, since all districts in the video game are unlocked via story missions.
Assuming you unlocked the area, head to the marker on your map and look for a building with exterior stairs.
It has several floors and the Chef’s Hab is on the second one.
You can see the entrance to Lanier’s Apartment in my screenshot. Notice that it’s behind a front door.
After the elevator ride, take your time to explore the area.
If you want to find only the Chef’s Hab, head down the corridor on the right, then on your right side you’ll see another corridor.
The apartment is on the left side of the second corridor.
Where To Find The Ascent Recipe In Lanier's Apartment
Inside Lanier’s Apartment, there are several Datapads you should access; however, if you want to find only the recipe, head right the moment you enter.
Cross the ground floor, then you’ll see some stairs that take you to the second floor.
In front of the bathroom is the bedroom, and the recipe is stored on the Datapad you can see sitting on the table in front of the bed.
Now that you found the recipe for Sal Mon, obviously, you’ll need to deliver it, so you’ll have to go back to Stimtown where the mission started.
Simply talk to him and The Ascent Recipe mission ends.
