Winterlicious review: Sultan's tent

J | Feb 3, 2006 12:21 PM

Having eaten before at Cafe Maroc, I was keen to try the special winterlicious offering at Sultan's tent. At $60/person it is priced above any of the other winterlicious restaurants (it is being done as a "special culinary event" with a choice of several days each week), but we were satisfied with the value. We were started with champagne & pomegranate juice (included), followed by soup (vegetable puree) and an appetizer (I had the shrimp & scallops - perfectly grilled, juicy and 2 large skewers, while my partner chose the pita platter - 4 Moroccan dips, tasty). We chose the couscous for 2 as our main and the meats were juicy and delicious (very filling). For desert we had a white chocolate cake that was delicious, very rich. At the end of the meal they serve mint tea, also included, while the belly dancers entertain. Some may find this all too themed but the theme is well done, with the decor quite believable as bedoin tents in the desert once the music and dancers start. I was impressed with the quality of the dancing which was more authentic than I've seen before in Moroccan restaurants in New York and Florida. The dancers invited women up to try dancing with them but there was no pressure to participate. In the end we enjoyed the evening but especially the food and would try this place again.
