Casbah Restaurant Review

: This Mediterranean restaurant and wine bar runs a serious, creative kitchen. Its attractive décor utilizes local artists. Well-dressed East End ladies lunch here as do young professionals who meet at the end of the business day for premium martinis and contemporary cocktails. There’s an extensive list of wines by the glass, as well as fine cheese sampler platters. Dinner caters to smart casual couples and small groups of all ages. The daily-changing, market-based menu includes sophisticated preparations of pasta, salads, seafood and duck. Mussels appear in different guises, as does Elysian Fields organic lamb. You can order a steak or something more adventurous such as the popular sheep's milk gnudi with tomato vinaigrette, pesto and herb salad. Vegetarians have good options. House-made desserts are variations on a comfort theme: crème brûlée, warm bread pudding, and ice creams and sorbets. Sunday brunch mixes the traditional with innovative items such as a sea scallop fry with scrambled eggs.
