I was sad to see Chameau close,...is the current state of Tagine worth trying?

I didn't go to Chameau to be among interesting people (it was empty the last few times i went).
Nor did i go looking for belly dancing.
I went for the food which i thought was fantastic.
Now that it's been shuttered for a while, some folks have pointed me toward Tagine.
Who's been recently? Does it measure up?
And, no, i'm not asking if i Ryan Gosling will be there. While i believe his performance in Half Nelson, Lars, Drive and Blue Valentine were impeccable, I don't pick my restaurants based on which famous actor co-owns a restaurant.
We can save famous actors running restaurants for another stream...

    There is a BlackBoard Eats deal today for Tagine so that might make it easier to try for yourself. However, while I have not been in a couple of years, I always enjoyed my meals there when I used to go.

        I remember their version of b'stilla fondly and thought my lamb tagine quite good.

        Does Chameau still have the deli open?
        Maybe we could coerce them to open for dining on the original menu for the weekends only, while keeping the deli for the weekdays.
        Like you, I felt the food was delicious, and in the approximately six or so times I ate there, it was fairly busy but seldom full.
