Plush sofas with luxurious pillows, velvety carpeted walls with exquisite designs and silken sheets billowing out from the ceiling create a hedonistic atmosphere reserved for only the most self-indulgent and decadent of diners. On Friday and Saturday evenings, Marrakech only opens their traditional dining room where diners can lounge in the lavish setting and choose from several different multiple-course meals. While one cannot order a la carte, the diversity in their multi-course offerings should satisfy even the pickiest of eaters. My friends and I ordered the Family Style Dinner ($29.50 per person), a seven-course meal recommended for parties of four or more. Each main course is presented in traditional large platters with a wide variety of offerings. The first course was Harrira Soup—a tomato and lentil soup rich in tex- Ture and very mildly spicy. After this initial tantalizing offering, the anticipation for the next six courses was almost unbearable. The second course was a Moroccan Salad with the three main ingredients of eggplant garnished with cumin and garlic, chopped cucumbers flavored with rosewa- ter (water in which the petals of roses have been steeped) and a mixture of cooked carrots, tomatoes and bell peppers. The third course was Bastilla, which Marrakech touts as its house specialty. Similar to the samosa often found in Indian cuisine, a Bastilla is phyllo dough filled with diced chicken, almonds and egg custard. For those vegetarians out there, Marrakech can substitute the chicken with eggplant. The stuffed dough is then baked until it's a crispy brown carapace and then dusted with powdered cinnamon and sugar. Your mouth watering, yet? The fourth course was Cornish hen served on a bed of couscous mixed with chick peas, raisins and variety of vegetables. The incredibly tender meat slid effortlessly off of the bones and the sweet couscous mixture perfectly enhanced its savory flavor. The fifth course combined a variety of lamb dishes, including lamb kabobs, Tajine of Lamb and Lamb Mrouzia. The tender meat of the grilled lamb chucks in the kabob were served on a bed of saffron rice, which was a perfect complement to the succulent lamb. The Lamb Mrouzia are chunks of lamb deliciously caramelized in a sweet honey sauce and further seasoned with a sprinkle of saffron, sliced almonds and sesame seeds. Unlike the other lamb dishes, the Tajine lamb was stewed with an assortment of carrots, sweet peas and artichokes. Each delectable bite of the stew diffused to every corner of your mouth and stirred every remaining dormant taste bud. Baklava, your standard Middle Eastern rich dessert was offered as a sixth course and our gluttonous endeavor was capped off with a Moroccan Hot Mint Tea which served to cleanse our insatiable palates. As if this seven-course gastro- nomical gratification is not enough to serve your decadent desires, a trained belly dancer sashays around the dining lounge and jiggles her exposed abdomen for your viewing and donating pleasure. As if this seven-course gastronomical gratification is not enough to serve your decadent desires, a trained belly dancer sashays around the dining lounge and jiggles her exposed abdomen for your viewing and donating pleasure. Enchanting her audience with the rhythmic striking of her zills—a form of wooden castanets—and the flourishing of her vivid and diaphanous robes, the belly dancer's sensual dance added yet another layer of debauchery onto the already self-indulgent evening. Marrakech's orgy of food and entertainment is best when relished with a group of friends who are in the mood for a gluttony of mouth-watering cuisine, conversation and eye-candy entertainment. "Sinful" would be the best description of such an evening and I encourage everyone to partake in the sensory delights that Marrakech has to offer.
