New fast-casual Moroccan restaurant opens in North Market

Jack McLaughlin

The North Market has a long tradition of supporting a wide variety of cuisines inside its historic downtown space, and that’s continuing with the addition of a new vendor. Yesterday, after soft opening events on Friday and Saturday, an authentic, fast-casual Moroccan restaurant, Tajine House, officially opened for business.

“Moroccan gastronomy is known around the world, but it’s usually only in bigger cities,” said co-owner Mourad Bassou. “We want to bring that to Columbus.”

Bassou, alongside co-owners Alex Daray and Lotfi Khomsi, are also the owners of Park Street Poultry & Game, a meat vendor that’s located inside the North Market’s downtown space as well.


All three are Moroccan, and see the new eatery offering fast-casual yet authentic dishes.

Diners can expect couscous, Moroccan meatballs and ground beef, sambusa, a variety of fresh salads, and their namesake, tajine. One of the most popular dishes in the country of Morocco, it features a number of protein options in addition to a flavorful spice blend, olives, cooked vegetables, and preserved lemon.

“In addition to continuing to offer fresh poultry and game at the North Market, we’re excited to share some of our favorite dishes and recipes from our homeland,” Daray said.
