Fodor's Expert Review Latitude 31

$$ Marrakesh Moroccan Fodor's Choice
Owner Ali Lamsouber has opened up his ancestral family home in the Bab Doukkala neighborhood to create a welcoming open-air restaurant in an enclosed garden courtyard. The innovative menu takes classic Moroccan dishes and adds an element of surprise, for example a succulent lamb tagine is loaded with wild mushrooms from the Middle Atlas Mountains, or the traditional pastilla (pastry) is filled with dates, apples, and ginger. Vegetarian options—spinach ravioli filled with goat cheese and dried tomatoes or risotto variations—are available and each course is beautifully and artfully presented with nice touches such as an amuse-bouche and small baskets of delicious homemade miniflatbreads. The overall ambience is low-key and casual, with jazz music playing in the background and the contemporary design—modern seating, lanterns, and low leather couches—contrasts nicely with the 1960s-style Moroccan patterned tiling. There's also a wide menu of nonalcoholic cocktails, soft drinks, and juices; alcohol is not served.
