I’ve been wanting to try Kasbah for quite a while. I finally planned to meet a friend there last month on a Sunday evening.  Should have done my research because we arrived to closed doors. Not open on Sunday.

However, we dropped in to celebrate a birthday last week and fell instantly in love with this charming restaurant.  Dare I say it, Kasbah may well be on our weekly rotation.

The interior is small but inviting, decorated in dark burgundy and white with posters and items from Tunisia, Morocco, and Greece.

Creating atmosphere

We started our meal with mint tea, which is served piping hot or on the rocks. I encourage you to try this refreshing beverage not only due to the marvelous taste but also because it is meant as a show of hospitality from your host/-ess.

The menu has various appetizers on offer but on that day, we were craving spanakopita.  Even though I felt it was light on the dill, we thoroughly enjoyed the spinach and feta pastry.

Our party took advantage of the lunch specials, served from 11am to 2pm Mon thru Sat.  We most certainly wish to return for dinner although we are a bit put off by the fact that this restaurant does not serve alcohol. And if you could not tell, we at Film & Food like our wine with dinner!
