We stopped for dinner before a concert at American Airlines Center. The location was very convenient and cozy allowing for great conversation. The food was terrific....something different from the norm which is exactly what we were looking for in our adventure. The Harissa dip on pita bread was lightly spiced and very yummy. For dinner, we each selected a pizza. The crust was thin the way I like it, the ingredients were fresh. The owner provided a lot of personal service and attention including bringing something extra for us to try. Loved it and will go back again.
Medina, meaning "center of the city," is a Moroccan-Mediterranean oven and bar in the heart of Victory Park's fashionable community.. The Scene A bazaar patio with ornate seating grants a majestic fountain view. Textured fabrics, exotic tiles and eclectic lanterns, imported from Morocco, envelope the restaurant interior. Sensual music also captures and pervades the true Moroccan spirit. Bold iron and canvas art stretch across the walls, and at times select celebrities accent the cozy bar. Guests dine at intimate tables surrounding the authentic Moorish oven that permeates the air and appetite.
The Food Before dinner, don't miss the Moroccan mojito with brown sugar cane. It will sweeten the Moroccan-Mediterranean experience. Sensational spreads such as hummus, fresh flatbread and the baby spinach and preserved lemon wraps introduce the wildly smooth flavors of this inspired menu. Main entrees such as shrimp calzones and Marrakesh chicken breast or Za'atar grilled lamb chops reveal the traditional and inventive Euopean culinary passions. An enticing dessert with a foreign flair is discovered with delight in the orange blossom crème brulee.
Hits: Although tables are spaced only inches away from each other, the music, mood and food do allow for a secluded experience. Misses: Food and drink were exceptionally prepared and delivered but the small tables weren't always cleared effectively to offer space for comfort or additional items.
