Sintir Restaurant, Cafe & Lounge (CLOSED)
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Etched metal lamps mark the entrance to this nearly hidden Moroccan eatery. Inside you’ll find thronelike chairs, ornate woven rugs and a sintir player (Saturdays) contributing to the heady atmosphere. The food helps too. A tagine of olives and fork-tender lamb is a soothing dish, and the accompanying juices are perfect for pouring over a side of fluffy couscous. A traditional pastilla presented a satisfying juxtaposition of shredded chicken, almond paste and cinnamon, stuffed inside flaky phyllo dough. For dessert, try the mint tea and briouates—baklava-esque sweets packed with nuts and honey.
