Michelin star food at only-kind-of-expensive prices. Aziza’s reinventions of traditional Moroccan dishes are actually all incredibly affordable, so if you want to go crazy at a Michelin-starred restaurant, this is where you should do it. Starters range in price from $7 (olives) to $22 (duck confit basteeya), but you can get the couscous entrée for 19 bucks.
A meal at this Moroccan-inspired restaurant is always memorable, so even if the date is mediocre, at least your meal won’t be. With cobalt blue Moroccan floor tiling in the interior and partitioned booths on the outdoor parklet, the space is sexy and moody but also casual. That casual ambiance translates to the food, which is robust, layered, full of spice, and meant to be shared. We would never recommend you put your date to any kind of test, but it is worth noting that sharing food is a great way to get a glimpse into your date’s personality. How do they handle ordering negotiations? Who gets the last bite of the thing you both loved? Okay, so it’s a little bit of a test.
