Hands are nature's silverware—evidenced by early man's serrated pointer finger and forked thumb. Get back to your ancestral roots in sophisticated, hand-fed fashion with today's deal: for $30, you get $65 worth of Moroccan fare and drinks at Marrakech Moroccan Restaurant on Paradise Road.
Marrakech hosts a warm, sensual environment filled with lush tapestries, live belly dancing, and delectably decadent dishes. Sit atop opulent pillows and wash people paws in lightly scented rose water before digging into the six-course prix fixe Moroccan feast ($39.95 per person). Moroccan-style shrimp scampi tickle tongues with crustacean zest, followed up by the lime, lentil, and spice stylings of the harira soup.
Like loyal sentries, the Marrakech sampler forms a tasty palate palisade of hummus, eggplant dip, olives, beets, and cucumbers to ward off flavor malaise. A procession of marinated beef kebabs precedes a royal couscous-and-chicken platter touting regal horns of butternut squash and cabbage. Refreshing mint tea and b'stilla, a fruit- and nut-stuffed pastry, bring a sweet end to the sweeping, bejeweled banquet. Herbivores can have their courses tailored to vegetarian needs at no additional cost.
Groupon holders may choose to purchase two feasts or use their extra dough toward libations from the full bar, downing a glass of Moroccan wine ($9) or a Moroccan Long Island ($6) before engaging in a hip shake-off with a hoard of talented dancers or one confused busboy.
Marrakech Moroccan Restaurant
At Marrakech Moroccan Restaurant, the staff wash guests' hands in rose water upon arrival. This isn't just a traditional courtesy—it's also practical, since meals here are eaten without silverware in true Moroccan fashion. Further adding to the authentic atmosphere, belly dancers circle among the dining room's low-slung couches and vibrant tapestries. But for all the festivity, the food still takes the spotlight. Six-course feasts begin with lemon-accented shrimp scampi, and couscous platters arrive loaded with flavorful chicken and vegetables. The kitchen gladly accommodates diners who require Halal, vegetarian, vegan, or gluten-free options, and silverware can be provided for those wishing to more easily spear bites off their neighbors' plates.
