Simon's Cafe

Sherman Oaks, CA 91403-4047


  • Tues-Sun 5:30 p.m.-10 p.m.
Simon's Café is a cozy bright Moroccan restaurant in Sherman Oaks. Chef Simon Elmaleh dons a maroon fez to greet customers and whispers with his wife as they prepare hummus, grilled eggplant, house-made merguez sausage, couscous and the specialty — a lamb tagine cooked with dry fruits, fresh apples and cinnamon. Order Bosch pears soaked in white wine and vanilla to end your meal, or figs stewed in Cointreau, and you'll be feasting as Elmaleh's family once did in Morocco.
