Moroccan Restaurants in Spring Valley

Rose petals speckle the candlelit stairway that descends into Shalel Lounge, establishing a romantic vibe that permeates the entire space. As vanilla smoke curls from a smoldering incense stick, guests canoodle in shadowy corners or private cavernous rooms. Here and there, lanterns and sequined throw pillows channel a Moroccan aesthetic that extends to the menu, which includes marinated olives, bruschetta, and lamb cigars. Each small dish occupies a square ceramic, supplying three or four heavily spiced bites. According to Serious Eats, Shalel Lounge is best suited for "a sexytime date."

Aromas of roasted lamb, spicy merguez, and subtly sweet shisha waft across Le Souk's three stories of space, surrounding patrons with the scents of Moroccan cuisine. In the kitchen, the chefs stuff housemade lamb sausage and sprinkle strands of saffron into their fragrant sauces. Platters of couscous and tagines with duck confit, red snapper, or lobster help to lend distinctly North African flavors to the menu. Moorish archways link the restaurant's orange-walled rooms, which are lit by dangling lanterns and smoldering coals atop hookahs filled with fruit-flavored shisha. Guests can practice their smoke rings or smoke dodecahedrons while live dancers and occasional DJ performances entertain them throughout the night.

Behind a Brazilian mango wood-slab bar stands Ariel Lacayo, Grata's manager and house sommelier. His practiced pours grace grails with New- and Old-World vintages that pair perfectly with Chef Meny Vaknin's menu of fresh Mediterranean cuisine. By incorporating Italian flavors and bold spices into traditional recipes, Chef Vaknin's dishes bear a distinctively modern touch without relying on garnishes of cybernetic lettuce. All the while, a gauzy glow of subdued lighting glimmers off wood accents and exposed brick walls within the elegant eatery.

Sheer red fabric flows from the belly dancer?s mid section as she swivels her hips. But all the attention is on her head, where a candelabra with candles aflame balances. The feat may be amazing to many, but it?s just another night at Jarfi's Restaurant & Bar. The dancing complements the menu of Moroccan treats, including shareable plates of creamy hummus, Moroccan eggplant dip, and tabbouleh salad. For heartier appetites, chefs whip up entree-sized seafood pastilles and chicken marinated overnight in a lemon sauce with saffron and cilantro. Beef and chicken kebabs are served right on the plate or tucked into a sandwich. Hookah is also available, and on select nights, musicians take the stage in one corner of the restaurant to play a continuous loop of ?Hot Cross Buns.?
