We had a small outing to Tangierino last night and I think we were all just a bit apprehensive prior to the dinner due to all of the recent reviews of Tangerierino during restaurant week. They were extending the restaurant week menu though they also offered the full menu which we chose to go with. As for what we ordered:

Apps:
Merguez - really liked the lamb wrapped in phyllo
Chicken B'Stila - LOVED this!
Beef Tartar Moroccan Style - i enjoyed this though i'm far from a tartar aficionado

Main Course:
Sultan's Kadra - piece i had was cooked perfectly though i know it wasn't uniform
Moroccan Style Duck - a bit overcooked, the mashed potatoes with it were nice
7 Vegetable Cous Cous - very good

Dessert: - i think it's safe to say, we all enjoyed both!
Assorted Sorbet - Tangerine, Watermelon, Lemon
Pyramid of Chocolate and Caramel Mousse

Sides:
Zalook
Mint Tea - mmm, moroccan green tea - one of my favorites - though not an exact replica of that which i had in morocco, still very good

Overall, I would definitely return. The atmosphere was great, service was good and food was an overall enjoyment. I could easily make a meal solely out of the b'stila and tea - for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

I will let the others chime in since I know I am not a very thorough critic (using the words "good" and "nice" and not many descriptive criticisms)... cheers!
