Inspired by Rafih Benjelloun’s family tradition

The Imperial Fez Restaurant offers traditional food from North Africa in an exotic dining environment. Guests dine on comfortable pillows and enjoy savory food eaten by hand. Shoes are left at the door and guests are magically transported to Morocco.

It is a truly unique dining experience with nightly belly dancing performances starting at 7:30 p.m.
