Under the gentle light of curvaceous sconces, Tangier Restaurant and Bar's guests can indulge their taste buds with an assortment of Moroccan-inspired tapas and entrees from the menu. In addition to plating fresh pita bread and traditional Moroccan–style lamb sausage, the cooks also stir chickpeas, onions, and raisins into steaming orders of couscous or glaze chicken with a homemade harissa sauce made from hot peppers. To accompany meals, belly dancers occasionally perform in the dining room, traveling between diners' tables with the controlled, fluid grace of an Olympian swimming in a lap pool of maple syrup.

The culinary sorcerers at Souk conjure up hearty platters of Moroccan fare. Gather friends to share warm tapas plates such as sautéed halloumi cheese ($8.85) or feed a lifetime of imaginary friends with the falafel ($7.95). The evening munch can start with sandwiches such as the shawarma, which bridges the gap between pita halves with a savory mélange of grilled marinated chicken and veggies slathered in garlic aioli ($12.95). Or sample the most regal flavors of Morocco without stealing a sheik's lunchbox by indulging in the lamb tangine, in which a tasty trio of stewed lamb shank, carrots, and dried apricots doze on a bed of couscous ($21.95).
