What You'll Get
Morocco is famed for Casablanca, a city named after the Humphrey Bogart film, and couscous, a reduction made from couscouscous. Discover acclaimed eats with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Moroccan cuisine at Marrakesh Palace in Dupont Circle. Start the feast with an order of fresh hummus ($6.95) or sautéed mussels ($6.95) while soaking in the lavish interior draped with gold curtains and shiny brass ornaments. To experience an array of North African flavors in manageable portions, peruse the hot or cold tapas menu, which boasts a tasty variety of soups, pastries, and salads. Among main courses the lamb stew, braised with artichoke and fava beans, delivers a hearty plateful of protein ($18.95), while vegetable couscous, teaming with seven herbaceous veggies, offers a lighter bite ($14.95). Belly dancers provide nightly entertainment, gracefully twisting and turning like bejeweled shawls blowing in the Mediterranean breeze, or inflatable tube men in a used-car lot.
- This place was so fun. I recommend the back room for a nice romantic dinner or a group of people. The food was incredibly flavorful, service was efficient and cordial, and the belly dancing was fun. – D S., Yelp
- This food and some strong cocktails (two of their signature cocktails, but I can't for the life of me remember what they were, though I remember they were good and strong) made up my mind: Marrakesh Palace was worth coming to. – Matthew H., Yelp
