As you know, I always make tasting local cuisine a huge part of my travels—indeed it can be a superb basis for any travel itinerary. A stay at La Mamounia is one of those total sensory experiences designed to deliver the best of what Morocco has to offer, and as one might imagine, they provide some superb dining options. We were thrilled with La Mamounia’s not one, but three restaurants, and in particular, their restaurant Le Marocain.

Primed with pre-dinner cocktails from one of the hotel’s opulent bars, we made our way to the heart of La Mamounia’s lush garden. Housed in a ravishing riad there, Le Marocain’s long-time Chef Rachid Agouray serves a delicious contemporary take on traditional Moroccan cuisine—in consort with some truly marvelous Moroccan wines, we were, how shall I say this, thoroughly transported.

Dressed to celebrate this magical evening in what I call my “millionaire-in-Marrakech” look (top), I’m sporting an ivory linen sateen suit, lavender cotton glen check pocket square and sand colored suede loafers by Tom Ford, a Gucci silk paisley Moroccan inspired shirt in lavender and ivory, python belt with silver buckle, vintage Rolex watch and my fragrance is Creed Original Cologne.
