Ignore crossover dishes like shrimp scampi at this traditional, tiled-floored spot on Astoria’s pan-Arab Steinway Street in favor of Moroccan specialties cooked up by chef-owner Najib Bennani. Consider his North African-spiced fish du jour, the meaty lamb tagine, or chicken couscous. Rosewater-scented honey cake makes a fragrant finish; a go-round on the hookah pipe doubly so. For even more luscious exoticism, a belly dancer performs on Friday and Saturday nights.
