Years ago a restaurant on 1st and 76th St. had a fabulus couscous royale - with merguez sausage,
chicken, maybe other lamb - many veggies and as much harissa as you wanted to mix with the broth.
I'm craving it. Any ideas where I might find a similar dish?
Bistro Lamazou has couscous royale in their menu. I have had the chicken couscous there and it was good.

I've had the Couscous Royale at Bistro Lamazou, and it is excellent. In fact, we've been to Bistro Lamazou twice -- for lunch and dinner -- and all the food we had both times was delicious. Service is friendly, and the space has very attractive decor. Highly recommended.
