RE: WhereToEat: Cincinnati and N.Ky (open chat)
We recently tried Marrakech in Clifton and were not impressed. Yelp reviews are generally positive, and everyone on there seems to love the bastilla (a sort of sweet and savory chicken pot pie topped with a lot of powdered sugar and cinnamon). I don't think there is any middle ground with that dish; we found it to be a complete mess of flavors and textures, and didn't even finish half of it between the two of us. The chicken tajine (a chicken quarter slow cooked in spices) was better, but was more Crock-Pot-quality than restaurant-quality in my opinion. My wife also had an adverse reaction to something in the hummus, which didn't affect me, but it did taste different (not bad or spoiled, just different) than any other version we have tried or made. I can't say we plan on going back.
