THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Medina Restaurant Review

: From the street, Medina doesn't look much like a restaurant: the sheer white curtain covering the front window and the two closed wooden doors scream stay out. But forge ahead and you will be rewarded. Plush sofas, red walls lined with elegant sconces, Islamic arches separating the rooms and Middle Eastern pop music seeping from the stereo make Medina appear more like a lounge in Marrakech than a Chelsea eatery. When it's warm, head straight back to the tented garden, where late-night clubbers sink into cozy couches and nosh on Moroccan classics. Start with the roasted figs stuffed with goat cheese and walnuts and move on to the saffron-laden chicken tagine. Other menu winners include Moroccan tiger prawns with spices and baked whole branzino. The wine list is heavy on Spanish labels, sprinkled with a few Moroccan choices. The service is friendly, but not the most attentive you'll find in the city.
