The dinner takes place at a private table ideal for couples looking for an intimate experience, surrounded by grass-covered floors and belly-dancers. Dinner begins with a sampling of three meze; hummus, baba ganoush, and ful medames, served with baked-to-order sesame pita bread. An appetizer follows, with a choice of one dish each, such as the Egyptian-style blue lump crab meat with shrimp, leeks, and scallions, or the baked baby peppers stuffed with a savory mixture of jasmine rice, fresh herbs, and spices served over house-made tomato sauce. The main entree sees guests choosing from a number of dishes like the grilled, sumac-seasoned half chicken with molokhya rice or the hearty, oven-braised mélange of market vegetables with homemade couscous, followed by a choice of dessert, selecting from a number of signature Egyptian dishes to share. A complimentary beverage will be offered to guests dining between 5pm and 6pm.
Casa La Femme
It might be hard to believe, but even in New York, there's no place quite like Casa La Femme, which has been in business for 25 years. Where else do some of Egypt's best belly dancers entertain night after night? Where else does a massive crystal chandelier hang above a floor of living grass? What's more, where else contains all that, and also serves hummus, crab-and-shrimp koftas, and rice-stuffed peppers that New York magazine's Hal Rubenstein described most succinctly as "magical." He wasn't alone. Zagat reviewers pinned the restaurant's decor at a 25 out of 30, and reviewers from the New York Times and NYCGo clashed only on if the decor or the food was more impressive.
