Tagine Beverly Hills gets into the act, too, with no corkage fee on Wednesdays (it’s normally $25). Chef Ben Benameur has some interesting wines on the list, including a crémant de Loire rosé, Bedrock “Old Vine” Zinfandel and Arnot-Roberts Syrah. But this is also your chance to taste some Moroccan wines, which you don’t see that often, paired with farm-raised lemon chicken couscous or suckling lamb tagine.
Tagine Beverly Hills, a Moroccan hideaway in Beverly Hills with jazz music and candlelit tables, brings an enchanting twist to the cuisine’s exotic tastes.
Chef Ben Benameur and his co-owner, Hollywood actor Ryan Gosling, wanted to create a place where the food is made with love and leaves guests feeling warm and satisfied. Together they brought this idea to life by offering a modern take on Moroccan cuisine and mixing in a bit of traditional Moroccan décor.
The menu pays homage to centuries-old Moroccan cooking recipes including a hummus recipe from Chef Benameur’s mother, served with marinated olives, sautéed eggplants and Berbere bread. Tagine is an ideal location for date night as the lighting is low, cushions are plush and with only nine tables filling the room, you’ll feel as if it’s just the two of you.
My last Foodie stop for dine L.A took me to Tagine Beverly Hills. Co-owned by the oh-so dreamy Ryan Gosling, Tagine is a Moroccan restaurant with a sophisticated menu and beautiful décor. For Restaurant Week, Tagine offered diners a three course meal for $50. Taking a look over the menu, you can see an elaborate array of Moroccan delight. It all looked too appealing, but I already knew what I wanted before I walked through the giant lime colored door.

At the tiny Tagine in Beverly Hills, Morocco is a state of mind. Think Rick's place from “Casablanca” updated for the 21st century, with a trio of savvy young owners standing in for the Humphrey Bogart character. One of them, wearing a fedora, sits at a back table, doing the accounts on his laptop while cool jazz — Chet Baker — plays on the sound system.
