Belly Dancers on Barracks Row – Brick Lane Morphs into Marrakech

By Larry Janezich

Brick Lane Restaurant on Barracks Row quietly morphed into Marrakech last week, though they haven’t changed their sign yet – that will come on Tuesday.  The Marrakech, formerly located in DuPont Circle at 2147 P Street, NW, closed this spring with word that it was “relocating.”  It landed on Barracks Row at 517 8th Street, SE.

The former American comfort food outlet, similar to its popular sister restaurant on 17th Street, NW, will feature belly dancers from 8:00pm until 9:00pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and authentic Moroccan fare.

Why Moroccan?  Brick Lane’s co-owner is from Morocco – Brick Lane’s webpage says “It’s a story of the American Dream. A Moroccan entrepreneur meets a Mexican chef, and together, an idea is born: a bistro founded on three principles – kindness, quality, and community.”  That’s the idea behind the opening of Brick Lane.  But a new cuisine substantially different from what other restaurants on Barrack Row offer, seems like a better idea.

Here’s the menu:  Please note that gluten free and vegan can be accommodated for most dishes.

    Rejoice! Before we moved to Hilleast, we lived near Dupont and ate at Marrakech multiple times…can’t wait to try them here.
