Just Like Marrekech

I just recently visited NYC and found a fabulous little Moroccan restaurant called Zerza. It’s tucked away on Sixth Street between 1st and 2nd Avenues which is a street that I’d recalled in years past, had been mostly made up of Indian restaurants of which there are still quite a few. But Zerza caught my attention. With it’s enticing aromas (I love Moroccan food!) and cozy atmosphere I was transported back to Marrakech – a place that I’ve had the great fortune to visit – as soon as I walked through the door. With advice from the people at the table next to us (New Yorkers are the best!) I ordered the braised short rib with prunes and almonds and was not disappointed. The meat fell off the bone and the lovely sauce was to die for. I finished off dinner with some fig ice cream which was heavenly. One of the best things about this place, aside from the delicious food, is that the background music is truly in the background and there is not one TV in the place! If you’re ever near the East Village (or are willing to take a ride down there) I highly recommend Zerza – You won’t be disappointed.

Welcome fellow Road Warriors! Like many of you, I travel for work -- A lot! But believe it or not, I actually pretty much love it. I've become a bona fide business travel tourist by finding quick things to do when I find myself with the bits of free time that we business travelers sometimes get (i.e. after meetings and before dinner.) especially if I'm in a great city like Chicago, NY or San Francisco. Because we never have much time, this blog is all about quick, easy, inexpensive/free things to do in some of the cities I travel to along with recommendations for restaurants that are great for meals with colleagues, but also perfectly comfortable for solo dining. So maybe next time you find that you have a few minutes to yourself on a business trip, before you just automatically head for your hotel room, barricade yourself in with your computer and cell phone and order room service, you'll be inspired to become a business travel tourist and start loving your business travel too. Feel free to comment on any of my posts and let me and other readers know if you have tips, or recommendations. Happy Travels!
