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.
