The real draw of this small Little Italy storefront is the Maghrebin food. Taking influences from Moroccan, Algerian and Tunisian fare, it’s a mash-up of cuisines resulting in delicious tagines, cheesy soufflés stuffed with beef or chicken that aren’t cooked in tagines but are tasty nonetheless. Or go for the comforting plates of couscous that sport huge chunks of potatoes, carrots and zucchini surrounding flavorful bites of lamb.

The menu here is quite extensive. The seating situation is a little cramped. If someone was entering the restaurant the door would almost hit the back of my chair. It was decently priced, and there were many vegetarian options.
