Named after a North African three-stringed instrument also know as a gimbri or hejhouj, Sintir is the East Village's newest Moroccan restaurant. The walk-down space is painted in rich desert colors, and a garden in the back beckons. All the action on the menu is in the tajines section-meat and fish-bearing stews braised in a conical ceramic vessel also known as a tajine. Some authentic, some not, they're flavored in unexpected ways with things like salt-preserved lemons, green and black olives, almonds, prunes, and a green spice paste known as chermoula. The tajines feature lamb, chicken, shrimp, and sea bass, and the one with tiny lamb meatballs is our favorite. (Please crack some eggs over the top, Sintir!)
