Last night we had the great pleasure of having dinner at Casablanca on Brady Street...Brady Street is a wonderful mix of cultural culinary delights from many corners of the globe....and part of what makes southeastern Wisconsin such a diverse and wonderful place to live. This taste of the Middle Eastern cuisine promises to treat your tastebuds to the best you have ever had of these flavorful choices.
The entrance is complimented with two enclosed flaming torches a the end of a sheltering canopy. First founded in Milwaukee 30 years ago as The Sahara Inn by Chef Jesse Musa, the restaurant is now very much at home on Brady Street and Jesse's sons, Ramzi, Ala and Nasser, have taken over the restaurant's management. The passion for exotic spices and pride in bringing guests not only a welcoming atmosphere, but an outstanding menu makes a meal unforgettable and this restaurant one that you will want to put on your top 10 places to return to again and again.
The menu has an array of freshly prepared entrees and the meal begins with your choice of soup or salad. David's soup was a famous hearty split yellow lentil slowly simmered with carrots, onions and spices and served with oven fresh warm pita bread. My salad was fresh watercress, endive and romaine with generous slices of tomato, cucumbers and olives tossed with crumbled feta cheese and accented with their fabulous house dressing.
Difficult choices have to be made with an assortment of entrees including vegetarian, chicken, beef and lamb. Kabobs of every variety are complimented by savory couscous or rice sides and other vegetables. If you can't decide on a meat entree....they have a Three combination...a palate pleaser offering a variety of well prepared chicken, beef and lamb.
No matter what your choice....you will find the dining at Casablanca to be a dining delight you won't soon forget. Reservations are recommended...which can be made on line or by calling: 414-271-6000. Open 7 days a week for your dining pleasure at lunch and dinner. To quote Bogie... "I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship."
