Devoid of the usual "atmospherics," this terrific Moroccan restaurant focuses on the food—succulent tagines and fluffy couscous—instead of exotic décor and shimmying entertainment. Even so, it would take an especially hyperkinetic belly shaker to distract us from a flaky, aromatic chicken b'steeya, or a fragrant lamb tagine, its meat as soft as the plump raisins and prunes it's cooked with. Local expats congregate here for strong coffee and honey-steeped pastries, and if we lived anywhere nearby, so would we.
