Total immersion is the key at Casablanca. Last year the stage was replaced with a Moroccan tent that seats 60. The background music features the oud, an ornate Arabic instrument made of wood with six double strings and a pear-shaped body. All decorative objects are imported from Morocco, including pillows that serve as seats, tapestries, carpets and chandeliers. The circular dining tables made of lemon wood and brass are handmade imports. Servers dress in traditional Jalabiyah garb. Seven courses of Middle Eastern cuisine cost $20 a person, a price that’s remained the same for years, and it is delicious. To cap it all, belly dancers perform almost nightly. Who needs a magic carpet to be transported?
