A couscous at CAFE GITANE, in the Jane Hotel

0

1 GrumLocated on the ground floor of the Jane Hotel, the Cafe Gitane supposedly offers one of the best couscous in New York. Let’s be honest, it’s more because of the fanciness of the couscous that you should come here. It comes in a suprising way, erected into the plate like a tower, with merguez on the side and with a portion of hummus on top.

If you’re more of an old fashioned Moroccan cuisine purist, avoid the one you’ll find on the menu at Cafe Gitane. I wouldn’t go so far as to say it wasn’t good because the couscous was very tasty and fresh. Our only regret? It was slightly dry, couscous usually comes with a sauce which enlightens the whole thing.

We also had the beet and goat cheese salad, which was a very well seasoned and quite generous too. They added some nuts, bringing a great crunchy taste. Not bad at all though the chef could have put more dressing.

VERDICT? FRESHNESS AND WATERED DOWN MOROCCAN CUISINE


Our experience at Café Gitane was great, not only because of the solid couscous but also because we loved the atmosphere and the well intentioned service. Obviously nothing really impressed us except for the curious look of the couscous, but there were no mistakes neither.
