The harissa fries are simply sprinkled with chile flakes; they owe nothing to the incendiary sauce that traditionally accompanies couscous. But I admit to being fond of the sweet potato fries coated in cinnamon and sugar, though this could almost be a dessert, it's so sweet. I'll also award points for the Marrakech salad, a bed of baby spinach in a sherry vinaigrette, topped with radishes, walnuts, feta, and large chunks of ruby red grapefruit.

Yep, they do have pizza in Morocco, and though FEZ's "kisras" are more akin to what you'd get at La Grande Orange, they're still worth snacking. Kudos especially for the lamb kisra with sliced lamb, spinach and feta, and the FEZ kisra with grilled chicken and manchego. I bet even the Shriners would dig the FEZ kisra's sticky molasses barbecue sauce. Fire up the mini-Cadillacs, baby. Frankenchristrides again.
