There are also traditional Mexican touches such as custom-designed ceramic tableware from Guadalajara and a trickling fountain anchoring the restaurant’s courtyard terrace. A stunning glass-enclosed kitchen allows guests to watch Chef Larbi and his team perform their culinary magic. And magic it is, with appetizers such as a Roasted Medley of Vegetables “Tortita” with Picholine Olive Tapenade and Sautéed Foie Gras served with Blue Corn Polenta and a Red Wine Grenache Reduction. Entrées include signature dishes such as Tagine of Lamb served with Artichokes, Sundried Tomatoes, Goat Cheese and Raz Alhanout Sauce and Grilled Veal Chop served with Plátano Macho “Estofado” (stew) in a Black Mole Sauce.
