$25 for $50 Worth of Moroccan Food and Drinks at Tagine Dining Gallery (Midtown West)
- About Tagine Dining Gallery:
Like a rose that blossoms out of a sidewalk crack, Tagine Dining Gallery sweetens the theatre district with an exotic and alluring perfume. Moroccan lamps, handwoven berber textiles and cushy seating create an understated elegance. Habitues of the restaurant/lounge steep themselves in the Maghreb, sipping luscious orange blossom sangria, savoring fragrant tagines, entranced by belly dancers and hookah pipes. What a shock to step outside, following this amazing melange of sensory delights and find not camels and dunes, but rather midtown Manhattan!
Aside from the beautiful and comfortably decorated interior, Tagine’s kitchen is dynamic, baking its own semolina bread daily, and encasing its own lamb merguez. A variety of ‘Tagines’ are featured at the restaurant. There are several different cous cous selections on the menu, and mouthwatering house specialties include “bastilla”, a Moroccan pheasant pie, and “moquadimat,” a selection of appetizers, ordered a la carte or as a mixed platter. Included in the wine list, is a diverse selection of Moroccan varieties, which delightfully accompany the menu. Don’t walk away from your table without sampling “Halahwyat” the most delightful, hand rolled traditional confections and pastries, graciously served with mint tea or Moroccan spiced coffee.

- What Time Out New York Says:
“A grubby stretch of Hell’s Kitchen is brightened by Tagine’s imaginative North African decor and exceptional, reasonably priced food. Roasted, marinated eggplant stars in the tangy zalouk, and vegetable borek features vividly spiced vegetables in flaky dough. Chicken Meisel – braised with herbs, preserved lemon, saffron and white wine – is positively succulent. End the meal with the basbousa, semolina cake with pine nuts and honey. You’ll also find an impressive nightly lineup of live world music and belly dancing, plus a three-hour Moroccan cooking class the last Sunday of every month.”
