Slip into this unassuming spot for a sampling of dishes from Northern Africa to Paris. Named for the distance between Algiers and the French capital, 1200 Miles outdoes itself to incorporate food from both locales and all points in between. With a modern twist on old-word chic, a cozy lounge area in the front has leather-capped stools and candle-lit couches that are perfect for a drink, and the slightly elevated dining room sets you apart from the drinkers nicely with comfy circular booths and romantic tables for two. For starters, the steamed mussels come in a spicy sauce on a large plate – they’re excellent to share with big groups. Of the salads, go for the asparagus and artichoke with Dijon vinaigrette instead of the market salad: Even though the pomegranate dressing is strong, the asparagus delivers a bit more zest. The crisped skate is nicely salted and pairs well with a salad starter, while the heartier merguez sausage literally sizzles in Moroccan spices. Both are nice alternates to the uninspired salmon dish, which errs on the dry side. If you just come for a drink (or would prefer to dine at the bar), the cocktail list is mostly sweet and spritely, but the Casablanca — bourbon and coconut water — is that dangerous kind of drink you could down by the bucket.Recommended Dishes
