THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Kemia Bar Restaurant Review

: Underneath the French-Mediterranean brasserie Marseille is this seductive, canopied North African lounge. Stroll into the seraglio-like room, and order either Moroccan tapas dishes like mackerel escabeche and couscous-crusted shrimp or one of the more luscious entrées like grilled rosemary lamb, crispy sole filet, or linguine Siciliano. And don’t forget about the lavish drinks on offer---the mint tea is a Middle Eastern play on the mojito.
