Come for the bastilla, stay for the tea, and what you find in between depends on how adventurous you're feeling. Paprika covers all the bases of Middle Eastern cuisine, with tajines, couscous, gyros and kebabs, all done simply and well. Finish off the meal with something different from the ubiquitous baklava — try the m'hencha, a coiled puff pastry concoction stuffed with almond paste.
