Inspired by King Tut's exquisite tomb, Al-Masri melds hand-painted Egyptian artwork and gilded decor with a menu of Egyptian cuisine that reaches back into the 7,000-year history of chefs Sausan and Hatem's homeland. Free-range poultry lays the foundation for dishes such as firakh fe alforn, served inside the main dining room alongside lamb and vegetarian fare, as well as in the Isis room, a 12-person private dining area. Thursday through Sunday, female dancers don traditional costumes to perform raqs baladi—belly dancing—atop a painted stage, channeling the traditional music in a display more emotive than a bag of mood rings left on the radiator.
