With walls saturated in varying degrees of orange, the interior of Baboush is distinctly Moroccan. Pointed architecture and ornate fixtures decorate the space, punched up intermittently with vibrant red, yellow, and blue accents. Grab a table near the floor-to-ceiling windows, or lounge on the pillowed couch stretched across the center of the eatery. No matter where you sit, the vibe remains the same; Energetic, romantic, and perfect for conversation.
The menu, which takes a turn towards Lebanon, features tapas-style small plates of fire-grilled kefta and lamb kebabs, seared lamb-chops, and saffron-infused couscous. But the most appealing item might be the babaganoush: Rather than simply combining eggplant, tahini, and garlic, Baboush’s dip also incorporates basil, jalapeños, and even pomegranate seeds—a creation Scott Reitz of the Dallas Observer calls “a sexy puree that belongs on every table.” And what better to go with a sexy puree than one of the Baboush's "sexy drinks", such as the Casablanca Mint Tea martini.
