Best Meat-Market Eatery (2008)

ZITOUNE

Let's face it, most of the restaurants that have opened in Manhattan's meatpacking district have turned out to be duds—configured to be of more interest to tourists and gossip columnists than avid diners. The restaurant that consistently serves up the best food is ZITOUNE, presenting Moroccan fare in a relaxed and celebrity-free setting. My favorite dish is tangia, a bachelor's supper of cumin-laced lamb long-cooked in a ceramic jug and poured into your bowl with much ceremony.
