A lush, dim Arabesque room with plush couches, pillows and tapestries is background for a unique experience. Servers in Moroccan dress serve a seven-course menu of fresh, spicy Moroccan food. Stewed eggplant, cinnamon pastry stuffed with spicy chicken, beef kabobs and lemony whole roasted chicken are a few offerings. Cue the belly dancers somewhere between scenes four and five. Upscale. Dinner.
From the February 2010 "96 Favorites" story:
A dimly lit dining room stuffed with cushy seats and rugs is the backdrop to one of the most fun dining experiences around. The roasted lemon chicken falls off the bone. The flaky bastilla made from cinnamon-kissed phyllo dough and ground chicken is a revelation. The dining room is dark, which activates your other senses. And from places unseen emerge bellydancers and Moroccan waiters bearing seven tempting courses. At $25 a head, dinner at Casablanca is the best value you’ll find at a restaurant that doesn’t have a drive-thru.
