Is Pyramids the Moroccan Oohs and Aahs?

Kadijah, the self-taught proprietress of Taste of Marrakesh (when it was on 9th Street in Little Ethiopia) has finally re-opened as Pyramids at 5th and Florida and her cooking is better than ever. The lamb tagine was a gorgeous plate of food with rich flavor and a peppery kick. On the side I chose the spinach which was wonderfully spiced and uniquley North African. My head was spinning. She was out of her heavenly carrot salad, which is worth a few oohs and aahs, but a house salad was tangy and dusted with cumin. All this for less than $7. It was a regal meal at any price.

If she can make a couple of other dishes this well, she will have herself a fantastic restaurant.
