Lotfi's is no more....

Lotfi's, which served excellent Moroccan cuisine on Restaurant Row for many years, has morphed into Capri, an Italian restaurant. According to an item in yesterday's "New York Times"' "Off the Menu" section, the chef/owner, Abdel Rebbaj, retired after 30 years behind the stove -- that included at a previous location before the restaurant moved to the Theater District -- and his son felt that, without his father, it would not be possible to maintain the high quality of the Morrocan food. Though I wish Mr. Rebbaj many happy years of retirement, it's a real loss to all those who, like myself, thoroughly enjoyed eating at Lotfi's.
