Despite the sale to a new owner, this Brooklyn classic charges onward. A recent revisit demonstrated that the chicken, lemon, olive, and potato tajine is as good as ever, offered in the namesake conical clay vessel. Availability of some dishes is spotty-there was no lamb on our visit-but the composed salads are on-target, and offered in hefty servings. Zaalouk remains a fave, a foot-long heap of mashed eggplant served with a warm, crusty baguette, and the vegetable-shingled couscous at the next table almost made us regret selecting a tajine.
