Honey, cinnamon, and raisins seem like sweet dessert fixings, but they're par for the main course at Bodega. All three make an appearance in the fez chicken—a Moroccan specialty sautéed with onions and dappled with roasted almonds. The chicken joins couscous, kebabs, and seafood paella on a list of Moroccan staples that pair well with live music and belly-dancing. Performances such as these elevate dinner to a multisensory event, one that can last in the swanky venue until 2 a.m., or whenever the dancer's belly button closes and goes to sleep.
However, Bodega's kitchen isn't married to a single region. Its versatility can be seen in a glance at the tapas section, where lobster risotto shares the page with housemade lobster nachos. Other small plates include soy-chili-glazed chicken wings, herb-crusted lamb lollipops, and homemade hummus with pita bread. The servings grow larger the farther back you flip in the menu, with pan-seared duck and grilled Amish chicken featured in the selection of entrees.
