Exotic Romance on Valentine’s Day: Dinner at Tangierno

By Mary Kate DePamphilis

You may have never been to Morocco, but after dining at Tangierino in Charlestown, you will feel like you have.  Hands down, one of the most romantic restaurants in Boston and the gateway area to the NoBo region. Tangierino is guaranteed to get you in the mood for Valentine’s Day.

The ambiance alone with deep reds and purples, sunken couches, Moroccan art, gauzy curtains and sensual lighting, is enough to take you away to another place.  The spices and flavors of the Mediterranean and Middle-Eastern inspired cuisine are out of this world and will definitely raise your body temperature.  Known for their lamb chops and traditional tagines, Tangierino delivers.  Guests can imbibe in cocktails with tastes you don’t find at many other places: muddled cucumbers, ginger beer, harissa, and ras al honout spices.

This Valentine’s Day at Tangierino, you can enjoy a three course meal coupled with belly dancing entertainment and a henna party.  You can choose from 3-6 options for each course.  When you have finished dinner, you can pop down to the basement level to the Koullshi Lounge to enjoy one of over 70 premium cigars, or a hookah.  The lounge has a walk-in humidor, a brick Bedouin tent for intimate smoking or tarot card readings, and of course more belly dance performances.  Overall the sensual experience at Tangierino and Koullshi is one not to be missed—especially on Valentine’s Day.

  • Location: 83 Main Street in Charlestown
  • Price: $75 per person for Valentine’s Day 3-course meal & belly dance special (2012 Valentine’s Day special)
