City Pages' Description

This unprepossessing Grand Avenue house is our local Casablanca, our outpost of sunny Moroccan flavors, Tunisian spices, and casual Provençal style. Skip the tired standard menu items in favor of fantastic specials like b'steeya, a Moroccan dish of shredded chicken in a slow-cooked custard sauce, baked inside a phyllo-dough pie, drizzled with cinnamon and orange-blossom water, and topped with pears, figs, and apricots. Brahim Hadj-Moussa--everyone calls him Hadj--also makes a mean crème caramel and a formidable poached pear with mascarpone and chocolate. The restaurant's a perennial fave with vegetarians and dinar pinchers; if you want summer patio seating, arrive early.

    At Barbary Fig, enjoy a puff pastry stuffed with scallion and tuna & served with spicy harissa for dipping, classic Moroccan chicken tagine, open-faced gyros, and very reasonably priced lamb specials.

    It was very tasty! Very small potions for what you pay, but it's ok! That's a cultural thing, just because we are conditioned to eat 10lbs of food at every sitting doesn't mean we should!

    So so good! Got the Greek salad and they added falafel with pleasure! The French rose was also delicious!
