Le Tagine’s Moroccan cuisine is delicious! In that same week, I had tried two other North African restaurants (one in New York and the other in Paris), neither of which even came close to Le Tagine. The credit for this restaurant choice goes to French film directors Olivier Assayas and Laurent Perrin. Cynthia had previously worked with Olivier on one of his films, and our filmmaker friend, Kit Hui, was living in Paris at the time, so Cyn and I were privileged to dine with three filmmakers. We indulged in fun and interesting conversation and quality ethnic food that’s hard to get in Manhattan. I can’t forget the lamb and eggplant tagine. The lamb had no trace of gaminess and was cooked so well that the tender and delicate meat easily fell off the bone. I can still taste the soft and luscious flavor from the sweet onions in this dish.
