I have been visiting this restaurant in uptown for several weeks now, reveling in it's light and delightful offerings and meaning to do a nice write-up. Imaging my consternation to see reviews published this week in both the Observer AND the Dallas Morning News. Ego aside, my goal has always been to entice you to try new restaurants and hooray for Baboush that the two aforementioned publications agree with me on something.
The restaurant fronts the construction site along Blackburn at Central. You may have difficulty finding the non-descript front, and it may help you to know that it is located right next door to Grimaldi's. The interior is tastefully done is a pseudo north african motif. The staff is ... ah ... still learning, unable to describe the dishes or even name the chef. Let's hope that they improve considerably in the near future. The owners describe the menu as being inspired by Moroccan street food. If that is what street food tastes like in Morocco then I am out of here. "The airfare is how much?" Darn, it looks like this is as close as I will get in the near future.
I happily visit Babouch at least once a week and will continue to do so as long as they are open. I fear that the food is a bit too sophisticated for the $30k millionaires living in the area and hope for the best.
