Casbah Restaurant Review: This wine-focused bar and restaurant has attractive décor that gives off a warm vibe. Well-dressed East Enders lunch and brunch here, as do well-heeled visitors who meet at the end of the business day for premium mixed drinks and vino. There’s an extensive list of wines by the glass, as well as fine cheese sampler platters. Dinner caters to 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 lamb. You can order a steak or something more adventurous, such as the popular sheep's milk gnudi. Vegetarians have good options. House-made desserts are variations on a comfort theme: crème brûlée, panna cotta and sorbets. Sunday brunch mixes the traditional with innovative items like a sea scallop fry with scrambled eggs.
