Chef-owner Mourad Lahlou's California-Moroccan food boasts a healthy dose of modernity that keeps locals coming back for his unique flavors and thoughtfully sourced ingredients. Diners enjoy inspired and gorgeously plated mains, ranging from squab with smoked farro to lamb shank with a kumquat glaze and cranberry couscous. Desserts here are as sophisticated as the savory dishes. Cocktail enthusiasts can choose from more than two dozen inspired drinks that use ingredients
like tarragon, kaffir lime, and cumin. The attractive three-room dining area is a warm, inviting sea of tiles, arches, and candlelight.
