Cafe Mogador

212-677-2226  •  $$
ADDRESS: 101 St Marks Place, (bet 1st Ave and Ave A), New York, NY 10009

CUISINE: Moroccan, Brunch, Mediterranean, Breakfast, Late-Night Dining, Cafe

FEATURES: Full Bar, Handicap Access, Patio Seating, Smoke Free, Vegetarian Friendly, Kid Friendly

DETAILS
Cafe Mogador is a mecca for students, a diverse international crowd and other generally hip East Village types. A perfect neighborhood spot for relaxing and sipping on some Moroccan tea, Turkish coffee or a glass of wine (while you study, of course), Mogador sports a handful of sidewalk tables looking out onto St. Mark's Place. A few steps down from the street, the main dining room exudes a relaxed café feel, with cream-colored walls and green trim, hanging lamps, wine racks, and chalkboards showing the daily specials. The menu consists of Moroccan and some Mediterranean classics such as falafel, a few varieties of couscous, and hummus with a spicy crushed red pepper and olive oil mixture on the side. Tagines, slow-simmered spiced stews, are the best-selling item and come with lamb (on the bone) or chicken, and rice or couscous, in a choice of five different sauces - try the spicy, green charmoula on a cold, rainy day for soul-affirming inner warmness. Breakfast draws a crowd as well with creative offerings, including Moroccan eggs (poached with a spicy tomato sauce, home fries and pita) or the Foul Madamez, a hard-boiled egg with fava beans and hummus. Full bar. Serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night daily. Sat-Sun brunch 9 am-4 pm. 
"Here you'll eat simple, filling Moroccan food with thoughtful touches, like fresh shallots in the mussels broth (a frequent special) and extremely tasty olive oil drizzled atop hummus and baba ghanoush."
