Imperial Fez Restaurant Review

: Upon entering this lavishly decorated establishment, patrons take off their shoes and prepare to relax on pillows set on the floor or plop into low chairs. Chef-owner Rafih Benjelloun hosts this multi-course Moroccan meal, which is eaten by hand as per tradition, although the timid may employ the use of a fork. Start by washing your hands in the customary manner, holding them outstretched over a brass bowl while a server pours warm perfumed water over them. The experience starts with a traditional soup, followed by a series of salads (carrot is especially good), then b'stilla (pastry-wrapped Cornish hen scented with cinnamon), then the patron's choice for a main course and dessert. We like the braised beef short ribs, spiked by the intriguing but gentle heat of house-cured hot chilies. Main dishes can be completely vegetarian. Special tea is poured from impossible heights above the brass trays that serve as a dining table, and dancers provide suitably theatrical performances, beginning at 8 p.m. (Ladies, you might be invited to demonstrate your style!) It’s all in good fun. An à la carte menu is offered Tuesday through Thursday.

Very cool restaurant

So this was a first for me. I chose the Imperial Fez as my first out-of-the-box restaurant, and I don't regret that decision! You take off your shoes, and sit at low tables. Once I was seated, I was immediately approached by my waiter, who took the time to explain the authentic dishes and different meal course options. The appetizers were scrumptious, main course was hot and delicious, and the dessert was delicate and sweet. I LOVED my time at the Fez!!! :D Oh, I forgot to mention the entertainment...Belly dancers!!
