The talented Moroccan chef who charmed Chowhounds at Carroll Gardens’ short-lived Marrackech has resurfaced in Windsor Terrace. At her new place, Fez Cafe, she makes an amazing lamb shank tagine with apricots and prunes, among other things, reports Barry Strugatz. Also recommended: vegetable couscous, chicken tagine, eggplant with charmoula, and moist, deftly seasoned rice.
The kitchen isn’t quite up to speed. Salads are hit or miss, and some dishes come out underseasoned. But service is friendly, the owner personable and accommodating, and there’s a lovely garden out back.
