For those that know me from VH1's The Pickup Artist or from my video blog w w w . ASKJDOG . c o m ..I'm all for wonderful experiences, especially with the the company of the right girl.
Last night it was around 9:30pm, and my girl and I were hungry so I did a search on my iPhone Urbanspoon app. We were close to this Moroccan restaurant, and by coincidence had been talking about Moroccan food earlier.. so we thought we would give it a try.
From the empty parking lot, and cleared away patio we thought it was already closed.. I tried the door.. it was unlocked.. I pulled it open slowly and peered inside to see a lush tented room, lined with lanterns and pillows.. with lush colours of various shades of red, accented with gold.
I grabbed my girl's hand and lead her into.. Morocco :)
It really was like escaping to another land. Our host greeted us, and showed us to our table. ""Sit be comfortable, take your shoes off and put them under the table"" he suggested.
A quick word of warning is that the dinner menu is a fixed 4 course meal, so for two with wine it cost about $125 + tip. Was it worth it? Hell yes!
The fantastic food, atmosphere, and slightly bizarre, albeit romantic customs of our friendly host made for an amazing experience. It's probably been 10 years since I've had such a fun and romantic time in a restaurant.. everything was perfect, from delicious and exotic food, to being shown how to feed my ""princess"" with my hands.
Take an appetite.. lounge around, and be prepared to go with the flow, and enjoy the mood. Perfect for snuggling up on the pillows together, or having a louder and more lively time with friends.
Pros: Great food, great experience, friendly staff, romantic!
Cons: A little expensive 4 course set dinner menu.
