So my wife and I had never eaten Moroccan food before, and realizing this we decided to try Zeitoon. We started with Zaalouk (Breaded Eggplant) as an appetizer which we both found rather average, and then we had Tagine Cornish Hen and Tagine Lamb. Tagine, I found out, is the reference to the colorful ceramic covers they use to slow cook the meal. Although my wife found the Cornish hen a bit dry, I thought the lamb was excellent. We both agreed that the spices used are wonderful, the tastes sublime, and the texture was wonderful in all the foods. The service was also great. The waiter was so enthusiastic that he sold the meals by himself. But the desert is what will draw us back. the Baklava, unlike Greek Baklava, is not so sweet so the flavors stand out much more. The taste, texture, presentation, whole package was wonderful. The total cost with tax and drinks was just north of $40, Don't let the store front style turn you away. I've found that restaurants can specialize in the ambiance or the food. I prefer to pay for the food. Great place to eat!
