Behind a façade that, despite best efforts, invokes a hotel bar, lies this charming neighborhood restaurant decorated with colored-glass lanterns and moody paintings of Moroccan street scenes. While regulars gather at the bar, tables fill up with first daters and families who dine on pillowy pita accompanied by creamy hummus, eggplant and roasted peppers; Fifteenth-Century Couscous studded with shrimp, scallops, almonds and apricots; or a beautifully prepared tagine, such as flaky sea bass on a bed of olives, lemon and caramelized carrots. If you simply can’t eat another bite, opt for the house tea, a refreshing blend of mint and rosewater poured dramatically into a small, jeweled glass.
