Tagine Moroccan Restaurant - Perceptor's Report

Perceptor Sep 5, 2006 09:37 PM

Just had a good dining experience at Tagine. Head Chef/Owner Ben testing out his new Tasting Menus and we were able to check those out. It was definitely a modern take on traditional Moroccan fare. The wait staff is prob the best, most knowledgable and most friendly staff I have ever experienced. Check this place out.

    Beautiful pictures as usual Perceptor, thanks! I've been dying to try a real Bastilla for ages, this'll give me a good excuse to try out Tagine.

      Have you tried the duck bastilla at Chameau on Fairfax just south of Canter's? It is an appetizer portion, and is REALLY tasty. All the other things I have eaten there have also been very good, yet Perceptor's pics are a great argument to try Tagine really soon.
      Thanks for those delicious pics - make me hungry - again!

      Nice pictured report as usual; convincing enough to get people to go. "Didn't know the Moroccans had Sangria" well they might as well since the northern tip of Morocco is less than 15 miles from Spain. On the other hand, Calais is only 25 miles from Dover but probably doesn't have Fish-n-Chips; but that's the French for you.

          What was the cost of the tasting? How much for how many people including food, drinks, tax and tip?

          Looks great.

              Does it say Ryan Gosling on the menu? why? Isn't he an actor?

                Ryan is one of the owners, according to their abc licquor license.

                  Oh, that's funny...and so LA. "If you loved 'The Notebook', you'll love Tagine!"

                  For the record, I DID love The Notebook, but was planning on trying this place anyway. :)

                Excellent! And perfect timing. Dining with a friend tonight who loves Spanish and middle eastern cusine. Wanted to take him to La Paella but they're closed for vacation. Just made a reservation.

                And, believe it or not, meeting Gosling at a screening of his new film, Half Nelson, this weekend.

                When the planets are aligned....

                Thanks for a great review + pix.

                  Well, today the tasting menu was $38 per person. But it was absolutely excellent!

                  Superb.
