DestinAsian - - GOOD TO GO | CITY SCENE -

The restau­rant scene in Tang­ier is small but ex­cel­lent. El Morocco

Club ( 212-539/948139; el­moroc­co­club.ma) in the Kas­bah of­fers cre­ative takes on Moroc­can clas­sics, from cher­moula-spiced stuffed sar­dines and seafood cous­cous to grilled squid with a puree of fava beans and lemon foam. An­other stand­out is the fresh seafood at L’Océan ( 212-539/338137; ocean­plage­tanger.com) on Sidi Kacem Beach. Start with the sig­na­ture tape­nade be­fore mov­ing on to the tarte fine of mar­i­nated an­chovies and then a gen­er­ous serv­ing of lob­ster tagli­atelle or creamy seafood risotto.

Casa d’Italia ( 212539/936-348) has been a Tang­ier in­sti­tu­tion for decades. Set in a for­mer sul­tan’s palace, the trat­to­ria of­fers au­then­tic fresh pasta, bre­saola, and, at night, wood-fired piz­zas. But the pick for clas­sic Moroc­can cui­sine in sump­tu­ous sur­rounds is the restau­rant at Ho­tel Nord Pi­nus ( 212-661/228-140; nord-pi­nus-tanger .com); or­der one of the sub­lime sa­vory-sweet tagines.
