Out and about in Casablanca and Fez

CASABLANCA: The Blue Parrot

The famous Rick's Cafe (see our review here) now has a new roof terrace bar and barbecue called The Blue Parrot (pictured above). Open for the summer months, the stylish bar overlooks the sea and has comfortable rattan furniture, baskets of flowers, sea breezes and, of course, blue parrots.

Serving drinks and a small menu of fresh salads and innovative barbecue dishes such as swordfish steak (Dh130) or a hamburger at Dh90, the Blue Parrot is open for lunch and dinner every day except Mondays.

The Blue Parrot is at Rick's Cafe, 248 Boulevard Sour Jdid, Casablanca Medina. Ph 0522 27 42 07/08.

FEZ: Maison Blanche

Maison Blanche (pictured above) is holding musical evenings every Wednesday, with a live band. This week (30 June), the degustation menu (Dh450 per person) will tickle your tastebuds with:

Amuse bouche of a light cauliflower and truffle mousse with smoked duck
Terrine of foie gras with pistachio sauce
Fillet of Saint-Pierre with risotto
Macaroon with Madagascar vanilla and caramelised pears

Maison Blanche is on Avenue Ahmed Chaouki opposite the Hotel Jnan Palace. Ph 0535 62 27 27.
