The menu opens with bastila pastries ($8) filled with cornish game hen, and moves to vegetable tagines ($17) steeped in chermoula sauce or braised lamb with caramelized apricots ($21). During meals, belly dancers sway to sultry Moroccan beats, commanding a presence with skilled moves.
The glow from Casbah's copper lanterns glints off brocade pillows lining low banquettes and floor-level seating in traditional Moroccan style. The opulent decoration sets the stage for an authentic North African feast, where guests are encouraged to eat with their hands as if they were dining with a family in Casablanca. Heady aromas of saffron, paprika, and ginger rise up from skewers of marinated chicken, sea scallops, and spicy roasted lamb, their richness punctuated by piquant shavings of preserved lemon or sweet caramelized apricots. Belly dancers sway under the dining room's tented ceiling, leaving no muscle or head unturned in the search for lost tank tops. An onsite bazaar beckons departing guests with Moroccan wares, such as kaftans, fez hats, and colorful pottery.
