We ate here on Saturday, May 19. We got the “Petite Feast” which the menu claims has five courses. I guess the bread counts as one course. We got the Harira Soup, the Bastilla appetizer, the lamb with harrisa sauce, and the final “pastry” and mint tea. First, the service is very disorganized with waiters going here and there, usually carrying one thing (and making several trips where one would have sufficed) and paying attention to nothing. The harira soup was an overcooked mélange with little taste, though it was filling. The bastilla appetizer had a filling that looked as though it had been pureed in a blender and then had a few nuts added. It was covered with phyllo and cooked. It was then drowned in powdered sugar and cinnamon. I have had Moroccan cooking elsewhere and eaten phyllo-covered chicken. It is usually dusted with a bare sprinkling of powdered sugar and cinnamon. This was so sweet it could have been dessert. The filling was tasteless except for more cinnamon. The lamb was two lamb shanks reasonably cooked and with a sauce that had some moderately hot peppers in it. Not bad. The “pastry” turned out to be a tasteless white cookie again assaulted with a mound of powdered sugar, The real insult was the check. It included an “automatic gratuity,” though there was only two of us. When the credit card slip came, they had thoughtfully removed the restaurant check, perhaps in hopes that I would forget the “automatic gratuity.” There was, of course, a blank on the charge slip of a tip. LOL, Casablanca. With a scam like that, and the food which ranged from mediocre to bad, we won’t be back.
