i went to cookies & couscous tonight at thompson and w. 3rd. silly name, and the moroccan food was only so-so. the cookies, also, were a let-down. the two things you'd think they'd want to be good at; so what is there left for them to get right? they have pretty amazing sorbets. we got the plate with nine flavors. some highlights:
red plum anise
mango/lavendar (i looooved this)
very good. the couscous was bland, the bisteeya was soggy (and bland); the chicken tagine was the winner, but only because of the olives and the falling-off-the-boneness of the chicken. if you go there only get the sorbet.
