Slow-smoked meats and Mediterranean décor anchor the menu and atmosphere of Casbah Restaurant, a cozy eatery coupling Middle Eastern starters and small plates with robust entrees such as spiced kofte skewers grilled with almond couscous. Steeped in red-hued lighting and the glow from flat-screen TVs mounted on the wall, the dining room echoes with “live dinner tunes” pouring “from a small stage,” as reported by Thrillist.com. Top-shelf spirits tower over a marble bar equipped with tap handles that trigger a trap door under evil henchmen posing as innocent diners.
