Go after 5 p.m. when, first off, they bring a lovely tray of small dishes and let you take your pick. Try the cumin-laced beet salad, the verdant tabouli, or the carrot salad, doused with olive oil and lemon juice. The menu at Mogador is mainly Moroccan, and the food is well-prepared and offered at a price that easily beats the other Moroccan joints in town. The best entree choice is the tajine, a thick stew made with chicken or lamb in six variations. Our favorite is made with a powerful paste of garlic, cilantro, and chilis called charmoulla.
