This place sounded like it had promise, but there were several issues. When we arrived to claim our reservation on a chilly evening, they wanted to seat us very near the door, even though it wasn't busy yet. We asked for a table further from...More

Dropped in on the day of the "great blizzard of 2017". The place looking homey and inviting. Had never had tagine before, so we got some advice from the server. He praised everything on the menu and claimed quantities were over-the-top. We ordered the vegetarian...More

I have worked 2 blocks away for years but never visited. Looks kind of dark, danky and forbidden from the outside. But my wife was in the mood for Moroccan and she said it had a good rating so off we went. What fun. You...More

Excellent Moroccan food! It's a great spot for a pre-theater dinner, but allow time as the dishes take time to prepare. We started with the cold Meze plate choosing hummus (very creamy with lots of tahini), khobiza and a lentil tapenade. Served with their semolina...More

While the layout enables parties large and small, this place feels cozy with a funky and culturally enjoyable Moroccan flare. The food is tasty. A very good menu for those who enjoy Moroccan chicken and lamb dishes, and equally tempting for those who want to...More

Description
Like a rose that blossoms out of a sidewalk crack, Tagine sweetens the NYC theatre district with an exotic and alluring perfume. Moroccan lamps, handwoven berber textiles and cushy seating create an understated elegance. Habitues of the restaurant/lounge steep themselves in the Maghreb, sipping luscious orange blossom sangria, savoring fragrant tagines, entranced by belly dancers and hookah pipes. What a shock to step outside, following this amazing melange of sensory delights and find not camels and dunes, but rather midtown Manhattan! Aside from the beautiful and comfortably decorated interior, Tagine's kitchen is dynamic, baking its own semolina bread daily, and encasing its own lamb merguez. A variety of 'Tagines' are featured at the restaurant. There are several different cous cous selections on the menu, and mouthwatering house specialties include "bastilla", a Moroccan pheasant pie, and "moquadimat," a selection of appetizers, ordered a la carte or as a mixed platter. Included in the wine list, is a diverse selection of Moroccan varieties, which delightfully accompany the menu. Don't walk away from your table without sampling "Halahwyat" the most delightful, hand rolled traditional confections and pastries, graciously served with mint tea or Moroccan spiced coffee. We have been hosting, catering and entertaining palates and bodies for over 12 years. Our new location boasts a generous bar, hookah lounge, semi private room and, as always, one of the lasting live music venues in Manhattan. Our concept is the cohabitation of flavors, aromas, palettes and palates:) The merging of cross cultural arts, artists performances while dining on slow, authentic and artisanal cuisine is our mission and brand. Hence our namesake, Tagine- Share the Experience We are the only artisanal Moroccan restaurant that has a variety of gluten free dishes on our in-house menu as well as an executive chef who can accommodate any dietary request.
