Good Moroccan in Manhattan?

I am looking for a place to sample a wonderful chicken tagine. Can't find any threads from the last year or so discussing Moroccan restaurants. Any recommendations? Thanks in advance.

  1. Zerza has a variety of chicken tagines. This topic has come up recently, but I can't figure out how to narrow down my search.

      Okay, I'll try searching again. I'm an Outer Boroughs resident so dont read this board as frequently. Thanks.

      1. Try the new French Moroccan in Murray Hill (2nd Ave and 30 something). It is called Darma and is supposed to be very good.

          Thanks. Will post a review if I go. Havent decided which recommendation we'll follow yet.

            The correct name is Darna. It's on 2nd, b/t 34th & 35th Sts. We had dinner there several months ago, and the food was, indeed, very good. Attractive Moroccan-style decor.

            ardnaxela, Unless they've added it since we've been there, they don't have a chicken tagine on the menu. But don't let that stop you.


          2. There's also Tagine, located on Ninth Avenue around 39th St., near Central Fish Market and the scenic Port Authority Bus Terminal......

            1. I like the tagines at Cafe Mogador, St. Marks between 1st and A. I know that Moroccans tell us the place is not authentic, and actually, it serves a mixture of Moroccan, French, and Middle Easter cuisine, but it's a tasty restaurant.

              1. I like Casbah Rouge on 111 and B'way.
