Moroccan Cuisine

Does anyone have any good Moroccan recommendations? Nothing too pricey, just something for 2 ... anything near the LES would be nice.. any suggestions?!

      I can't wait to try it. Thank you very much!

        I've found it inconsistent. My recommendation would be Cafe Mogador, but I realize that that's more of a Moroccan/French/Israeli hybrid.

          Well I've only been there the once, but found it to be wonderful.

          Someone mentioned to me last week there's another Moroccan spot nearby in Alphabet City, but didn't know the name.

    2. I second Mogador...the ambiance is great and the drinks are amazing. Moderately priced as well

        1. I just ate at Mogador a couple days ago and it was the best lamb I've had in a long time. Delicious. And the rice there is like crack. I hadn't been in a few years, but I'll be back sooner this time.

          1. My wife and I both enjoyed Zerza. A simple, pleasant and somewhat cozy atmosphere. Of course we ate before the belly dancer came.

              I've always liked Mogador and its vibe (I've been going since they opened 25 years ago), but I think the food at Zerza has more panache. Haven't tried Nomad. Mogador is a great brunch bet too.
