At Sahara Restaurant, mealmakers pile plates with heaping portions of authentic Moroccan, Lebanese, and Mediterranean cuisine from a menu drawn from generations of family recipes. Gastronomic trips begin after snipping ribbons tied across the table with oversized scissors and breaking a bottle of champagne across a pair of salads, such as the fattoush, a diced mélange of veggies and parsley tossed in lemon juice and a secret blend of Sahara seasonings. Paint stomachs with creamy appetizers such as hummus or baba gannouj, or chew through lamb sliders accompanied by spicy harrisa for dipping. Main courses corral a menagerie of meats, including the merguez couscous, a homemade Moroccan-style beef sausage backed by seven fresh veggies; or the lamb shank, whose slow-roasted preparation and terrible coordination make it fall right off the bone. A slice of baklava sweetens tongues bombarded with savory sensations, and food-centric excursions can flow smoothly when accompanied by one of three bottles of wine, such as La Dame Blanche du Chateau Kefraya, a Lebanese white, or Les Trois Domaines Guerrouane Rouge, a Moroccan red.
Intimate booths offer a private rendezvous for amorous couples and recently thawed Cold War spies as food-laden servers pad across imported Moroccan rugs. Rustic handmade pottery festoons the dining room, and warm light from multicolored lanterns kindles belly dancers in an ambient glow on Saturdays.
