Walking through the door here is like teleporting yourself to the casbah. There are open tables in the center of the restaurant, but it's better to choose one of the booths that line the walls. Here you can settle into a cozy sofa while examining the menu over a complimentary serving of black olives, olive oil, and warm bread. Everyone who works here is from Morocco—the chef, musicians, and serving staff—so ask for their expert advice on menu options. The superb food includes slow-cooked tender lamb and beef dishes.
