Is Marrakesh in Philly still around?

When I was still living in NJ, I remember a tremendous Middle Eastern restaurant called Marrakesh in Philly near South Street. The place didn't advertise, and there was no outward sign there was a restaurant in the building, only some Arabic letters on the wall. They had two seatings for dinner, and when you walked in the wall was covered with pictures of celebrities who'd eaten there. The inside of the restaurant was total harem--brass tables, rugs, low couches. The food was absolutely amazing. If anyone knows about this restaurant and if it still exists let me know--I'm making a trip up in August, and I would love to go there again!
