Enjoyable evening at Aziza

Joan Kureczka | Feb 22, 200401:07 PM     6

We finally made it out to Aziza with a group last night, and went for the tasting dinner. Standouts were the couscous, rabbit in paprika sauce and most of the starters. Also I loved the caramel/rosemary ice cream, which was almost cheese-like and not too sweet. The bastilla was a disappointment -- well seasoned but this version was much too dry. My own home renditions have been much better.

We quite enjoyed the evening, and the wine list is certainly more interesting and more friendly to Moroccan seasonings that what one normally is offered at most places of this sort (we had one of the rieslings, followed by a gruner vetliner). However, I'm not sure that the food overall is any better than the best of the more traditional Moroccan places... with the exception of the desserts, which were untraditional and much more interesting than the standard.

One of our party tried Aziza's almond margarita, which substitutes amaretto for the orange liquor of the standard drink. A real winner.
