My boyfriend and I were on our way to Fugaise to try it out and came across Mairin's Table. If you don't look closely, you'll miss it - seeing I missed it for two years passing it by on my way to work. It is located facing 1st vs. the busy Hennepin street and shares its parking lot with NE Bulldog. (Across from Surdyks). I found the space to be charming, intimate and I'm afraid - with lack of customers. Maybe I hit it on a bad night, but we were the only two there. It was 8pm on a Thursday night! I got the tagine with chicken and couscous. To be honest, it is not their best dish. The couscous was dry and true tagine takes 45 minutes to make - and this came out dry in 10. But Dave got the beef stroganoff which was truly sensational. Decent wine and beer list. If you want cozy atmosphere in the Northeast - I would give Mairin's a try!
