This was our second visit to this little gem. The first was about 2 months after it opened and while that meal was good, we had a feeling the kitchen needed to get its act more together. We were right: this second meal was outstanding. I started with the Carrot-Ginger Soup, a wonderful blend of flavors, then had the Lamb Tagine, a signature dish, filled with apricots, almonds and white beans and melt-in-your-mouth chunks of lamb; a small bowl of couscous on the side and one of a fascinating carrot slaw come with the order. My husband started with a seafood salad of grilled shrimp, scungili and calamari that was so fresh it was a wonder they didn't jump out of the plate, then had Chicken Cordon Bleu (special that night) with perfect haricots verts and a vegetable couscous.
You step inside and this place feels foreign. Is it the deeply warm-colored walls? The lacy curtains? The variety of old plates and maps on the walls? The etched windows? The weathered wooden floors? Does it matter? We appreciate the friendly but not overly-attentive service. Next time we have got to leave room for dessert.
