Tagine Restaurant & Wine Bar Restaurant Review

: The deep reds, ceramic decorative plates in the Middle Eastern and Mediterranean style along the otherwise unadorned beige walls and intimate, dimly lit bar with wicker seating recall a charming bistro in one of the bohemian sectors of Paris. The menu is fundamentally French with the infusion of Moroccan flavors. Start with an array of duck rillettes, Brie, cured meats, cornichons, olives and pickled cipollini. The pissaladièrre comes in two variations: a caramelized onion, goat cheese and roasted cherry tomato version or the merguez with lamb sausage, roasted red peppers, spinach and a fiery Moroccan paste. Tagines, not surprisingly, are the focus. The seafood take, with cod, mussels, shrimp, scallops, red chermoula, cippolini, fennel, marble potatoes, artichoke and preserved lemon, is a complex medley of slow-cooked flavors, while the beef short ribs variety, with tender meat, prunes, cauliflower, chickpeas, tomatoes and baby potatoes is pungent. It would not be a wine bar without a large selection of wines. Varietals from the Old and New World and some local vineyards entice one to sample as well as mix and match with the menu. The no reservations policy encourages arrivals before the evening rush hour on weekends.
