THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Casa La Femme Restaurant Review

: THIS ESTABLISHMENT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS This romantic fantasy of a Casbah is definitely theater-as-restaurant as opposed to restaurant-as-theater, with tented tables and, on Monday nights, belly dancers and tarot-card readers. It attracts hipsters until the wee hours, and they're not here for the food. Though, in fact, the food is surprisingly good---lots of eat-with-your-fingers and scoop-up-with-pita-bread appetizers, such as hummus and baba ghanouj. You can recline on pillows and indulge in a five-course Egyptian feast featuring such entrées as sugar cane-marinated roasted squab, tahini-and onion-crusted red snapper, or mint-roasted baby lamb shoulder with savory Egyptian bread pudding, topped off with a cup of strong, thick Turkish coffee.
