Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

The first thing to arrive at your table is a bowl of the fiery hot sauce harissa, but trust us—there’s nothing painful about eating here. Appetizers like zaalouk (soft roasted eggplant salad) and taktouka (earthy roasted green peppers) exhibit all the surprising, uncommonly nuanced flavors Moroccan food is famous for. Meanwhile, the lamb Marrakech tagine combines tender lamb with bright flavors of preserved lemon, and a sweet chicken couscous is indeed sweet, but balanced by onions and almonds. The only opportunity for discomfort? When you try to pay by credit card (this place is cash only, bro).
