Embrace Moroccan hospitality to the fullest and bone up on your Arabic at Shokran, where the country’s culinary culture is displayed in a romantic setting. Nooks and crannies throughout the dining rooms offer intimacy; take a seat among the cozy cushioned banquettes and prepare to say “shokran” (thank you) repeatedly as courses come your way. Traditional dishes offer the most authentic experience, like sweet and savory bastilla, a flaky pastry starter that's large enough to serve two, stuffed with spiced chicken and dusted with cinnamon. Famously rustic, the lamb Marrakesh tagine features a meaty bone-in shank adorned with slivers of bitter preserved lemon and surrounded by sweet peas, whole black olives and tender quartered artichoke hearts.
