Morocco on 15th Street
It was a day in Casablanca at the Sofitel in Lafayette Square as guests gathered at the hotel’s Ici Urban Bistro to savor the flavors of Morocco in honor of the opening of two of seven new Sofitel properties in Morocco—Casablanca and Essaouria, in 2011. Sofitel D.C. General Manager Pierre-Louis Renou hosted media mavens Stephanie Green, Pamela's Punch’s Pamela Sorenson, K Street Kate's Kate Michael, Matthew Dornic of Fishbowl. The dynamic duo of Nikki Schwab and Katy Adams of the Examiner’s Yeas and Nays, DC Magazine publisher Peter Abrahams, and Capitol File’s Sarah Schaeffer were among the group. A Moroccan Week menu, created by visiting chefs from Marrakech, Fes and Rabat and featuring authentic delights like meat briouats, an assortment of traditional Moroccan salads, and seven vegetable couscous with lamb and tfaya will be available at Sofitel’s Ici Urban Bistro from September 25-October 3.
