Menara Moroccan Restaurant Restaurant Review

: This whimsical place has been around since the late '70s. Seating is on pillowed couches, eating with your fingers is encouraged and swirling belly dancers, sumptuous rugs, and silver serving pieces complete the atmosphere. Try the Menara dinner, featuring Moroccan salad, b'stilla, chicken with lemon, lamb with honey and vegetable couscous. Flaky baklava and mint tea conclude the feast. Service is warm and accommodating. Lunch can be booked for groups of 25 or more.
