Taste of Morocco
Taste of Morocco’s vibrant character spans from the flavorful cuisine that tops the dining room's linen-covered tables to the belly dancers who swivel and sashay around guests seated in turquoise chairs. In the kitchen of the cozy neighborhood eatery, chefs dress morsels of chicken, lamb, and veggies in tagines and couscous dishes. Multicourse feasts are also available, conveniently portioned for two. The belly dancers add extra spice to the dining experience on weekends, displaying feats of abdominal coordination while diners' stomachs contentedly perform the digestion fox trot.
