Here's looking at you, kid.

For lunch yesterday, Mr. Charlestown Culinary and I went to Casablanca for lunch. Did we discover a non-stop jet to Morocco? Not quite... more like a restaurant in Cambridge's Harvard Square. The restaurant describes their menu as 'creative Mediterranean cuisine' and has dishes ranging from Turkish stew to North African cous cous.

We started our meal with fresh pitas and a creamy mushroom soup.

From there, Mr. Charlestown Culinary had the grilled Mahi-Mahi which was served on top of braised greens with a yogurt sauce and fried green tomatoes. On top of the grilled fish was a charmoula, a Moroccan marinade made from a mixture of herbs, garlic, lemon and spices.
For my entree, I got the Turkish Meze plate. The dish came with muhammara - a spicy dip made from red peppers, carrot salad with olives and feta and musabaha - a course hummus.


  1. So what is the verdict?

  2. Overall I would give them a 'B'. The food was good, although service was slow. Menu-wise, I would have liked more Moroccan options.
