Omar's Carriage House Restaurant Review: This former carriage house, owned and run by Omar Boukhriss, is a historic building site in Norfolk. While the specials on the menu change with the seasons, some retain Moroccan accents. The fried green tomatoes Benedict is a brunch winner, as are the classics: french toast (order the bland strawberry purée on the side) and omelets. For dinner, we recommend duck breast with roasted grapes, port reduction and quinoa; grilled pork tenderloin with honey sage butter; or potato-encrusted flounder. On Monday nights look for the Moroccan menu that features chicken or lamb tagine, kebabs and stuffed trout (complete with head and tail) over couscous. Service is friendly and attentive in this cozy restaurant, with its cheerful slip-covered chairs, multi-patterned serviettes and fresh flowers on every table. Ongoing wine dinners are a special delight.
