Enjoyed my third visit to Tara Kitchen last night. A great dining experience, as were my other two visits. Greeted warmly as always by the owner, Muntasum, and had a seat at the counter. It is a pleasure to sit at the counter and watch Aneesa, who is the co-owner of the restauant and wife of Muntasum, cook. She orchestrates the cooking of multiple tagines in the bustling restaurant and makes it look effortless. The complementary mint tea with honey is delicious and warming. We enjoyed a bottle of the Medallion Red wine, which pairs wonderfully with the Morrocan flavors. Every dish I have tried has been amazing, but my favorites are the ground lamb kebab appetizer and the picoline olives in spicy harissa. For entrees, the lentils with preserved lemon and green olives and the lamb with almonds, prunes, honey and apricots are simply mouth watering. Throughout the evening we had lovely conversation with Muntasum and Aneesa, as well as a friendly and enthusiastic waiter who actually let us try a taste of his meal and treated us to baklava on the house and a competent sous chef who took over for Aneesa when she went upstairs to put her children to bed. We were treated to an appearance by those two adorable children as well. A fabulous night that is all that an unforgetable restaurant experience should be. Also signed up for Aneesa's next available cooking class.
