  1. Pay no attention to anything you've read or heard about Mazagan; go here and get the Bastilla ($9.50, get the one with chicken) and Moroccan Couscous ($18) with caramelized onions and raisins. The couscous would make a perfect carryout dish - it will retain its heat for at least 30 minutes. If you don't want to invest your time, at least get this to take home. Don't let the Hookah room scare you away - that's late-night stuff; the bar is a great place to dine, the food is made from scratch, and the interior reminds me of Monty's Steakhouse in Springfield - it's a very nice-looking restaurant ... and there were *no* diners in the main restaurant when I went. None. The *last* thing I felt like doing right now is posting about a restaurant; it would have been immoral if I hadn't. Trust me - we could be in danger of wrongly losing yet another restaurant if you don't. Comfortably placed in Italic, and ranked as the #1 restaurant in South Arlington in the Dining Guide with no serious challenger in sight.
  2. ClosedChef Driss Zahidi is opening Le Mediterranean Bistro, hopefully in April, in the old Sabzi space at 4008 University Drive in Fairfax. This will be a French Bistro (remember, Driss was the opening chef at Bistro Vivant), with Moroccan dishes as well, as Chef Zahidi is from Morocco. This should mean there will be lots of dishes from Provence and the Côe d'Azur. A sample opening menu can be found here (note the Octopus Kebab). As far as I'm concerned, we cannot get enough good southern French restaurants in this area. Congratulations to the whole team.
  3. Walked by there today and it is open. A complete transformation of the previous premises (Mr. P's). Anyone been yet?
  4. Ate here tonight fir the first time and will be back. I couldn't find a thread for this restaurant, which is on Wilson Blvd in Arlington, west of Pupatella, right next to La Union (which I also couldn't find a thread for, but we decided to try Sultana Grill tonight instead). Sultana Grill bills itself as Moroccan and Mediterranean food. I was a little dubious, but we liked it enough to declare, mid-meal, that we planned to add it to our rotation. The hummus came with freshly chopped parsley, olive oil, and pickled turnips and tasted less tahini-like than Lebanese Taverna Market's. We agreed it was a different taste, with a lighter feel. Same with the tomato avocado salad. It was tangier with more of an herbal taste, and more lightly dressed. Pita bread was nothing to write home about. Spinach pies were baked, not fried and were lemony. I like more spinach and less dough, but I would get these again. Came with what I think was a tahini/herb dip. Chicken shwarma was delicious. Not sure what the marinade and spicing were, but the chicken was tender, chopped to a nice size, and came with garlic spread, more pickled stuff, and saffron rice that was just the right consistency. We were the only non-Arabic-speaking family in the place for dinner (not that it was packed). Capped it off with Moroccan tea (minty sweet) served in the lovely glass cups and a silver teapoton a silver tray. Service was not quick, but we weren't in a hurry. If I missed a thread somewhere on the site for this, my apologies, but I thought it was a tasty, family-owned place I'd go back to, so I thought I'd share.
  5. Taste of Casablanca in Arlington is better. As for Belly Dancing, I think that is done simply for the tourist and the uninformed. My wife (who is from Morocco) says belly dancing is not a big thing over there.
  6. Souk a small Middle Eastern restaurant opened at 1208 H Street earlier this week. It's a tiny operation that seems to be run by a husband and wife team with seating for dine-in and take out available. At first glace, it looks like a great addition to the neighborhood with a very inexpensive menu of Middle Eastern staples (hummus, baba ganoush, grape leaves, schwarma, falafel, kafta, kebobs, etc). The opening menu is attached.Souk.pdf
  7. I happened to be in the neighborhood and I noticed that the windows of the Union Halal Butcher at 5102 Wilson were papered over. This butcher shop is directly next door to Pupatella at 5104 Wilson, and it's where Sam would get his meat to make kibbee nayeh whenever I give him advance notice that I'm coming to Layalina. But also papered over, on the other side from Pupatella at 5100 Wilson was a sign for Fettoosh, promising Lebanese and Moroccan cuisine, and opening "soon".... Coupla thoughts....don't know what happened to the Union Butcher, but it appears to be folded into the new Fettoosh operation....not likely to be serving alcohol if it's still halal....Lebanese and Moroccan may be compatible but certainly not identical, so the kitchen staff may have dual heritage....but yes, another representative of a fine family of cuisines is coming to North Arlington!
  8. I think everyone knows the answer is not Marrakesh in DC. I go there every few years for the experience, but the food hasn't changed in the nearly 20 years I've been going there. It's currently $27/person, or at least it is on Sunday nights. Just by coincidence I was there this evening. The salads were very nice. The chicken in the bastilla was softer than the egg (and there was more powdered sugar than anything else.) The roast chicken with olives and lemon was decent - a bit more lemon would have gone a long way, and you really can't have too many olives on that dish. The lamb shank with honey and almonds was good - tender and sweet from the honey, and the almonds were added late enough that they still had crunch. Couscous was fine, a fruit bowl is a fruit bowl, but the baklava was pretty weak. Boy, now that I write that, why did I go? Several years from now I suppose I'll forget, and go again... <edited to add: I'm a clam!>
