Belly Dancing Destination Marrakech Is Moving From Dupont Circle

Staff at the newly closed Moroccan restaurant says it’s relocating

Tierney Plumb is the editor of Eater DC, covering all things food and drink around the nation's capital.

Full-fledged Moroccan restaurant Marrakech is no more, at least for now.

The years-old Mediterranean eatery, which served up lunch and dinner in an ornate and colorful setting, was known for its hard-to-find dishes like lamb with sweet prunes and couscous and tfaya, with chickpeas, raisons, and almonds. And live belly dancing on Fridays and Saturdays also drew a regular crowd.

A Marrakech employee responded to an Eater inquiry via email, simply stating the restaurant was “relocating” but declined to add further details. On Thursday a Popville tipster reported the restaurant was clearing out to make way for a new development.

Dupont Circle recently lost another restaurant nearby when Circa closed its flagship bistro (1601 Connecticut Avenue NW) at the end of 2017.
