We were looking for some good eats and a little glamour along with our late reservation on a Wednesday night, and we more than got it at Azar. For three people (2 men and 1 woman), we ordered one tasting menu intended for 2 plus 2 extra mezes and had plenty of delicious food. The chicken wings were the absolute hit all around, and I don't normally like wings. The falafel were the most petite but best I've ever had. Also enjoyed the fried haloumi a lot but everything was really very good. For the mains, we had the chicken and the lamb tagine. Chicken was good but lamb was out of this world. That sauce! We ate every morsel of lamb and the sopped up all the sauce with our bread. Dessert was a panna cotta type thing in fleur d'orange/rose flavor and a cheese dumpling in the same flavor profile. Yum. Ambiance was also perfect — mood lighting and a mix of vintage and modern decor. Bathrooms were a special treat with clever custom wallpaper in each stall featuring a different type of souk vendor: slippers, scarves, lotions and potions, etc. There was an energy throughout thanks to the ridiculous but fun belly dancers, friendly hosts/servers and happy customers. Neighborhood was otherwise pretty generic in my eyes, but happy to go out of way for this gem.
