Casablanca in Cambridge--Suggestions on What to Order?

RGreenstein May 4, 2010 12:33 PM

I bought a Groupon gift certificate for Casablanca in Harvard Square. I have never been there but have heard a lot about it so thought it would be worth a try. Anyone been there and have suggestions on what to order?

    I absolutely love their small plates. Some of my favorites include Ana's short rib ( simple plate of a small portion of short rib braised with onions and garlic in soy sauce and balsamic), Sari's lamb (slow cooked lamb shoulder served with charred tomatoes and yogurt about grilled flatbread), and ricotta dumplings. Their cocktails are pretty good too.

      I had Sari's lamb last friday and enjoyed it very much. Enough for a light lunch and very tender

      I second the small plates; in particular, the "mezze" plate. The olives are also very good and I recently enjoyed a cheese plate with friends.The Ana's short rib is the recipe developed by Ana Sortun, the acclaimed chef of Oleana, when she was the chef there. It is wonderful. In the past I have enjoyed the soups.

        Another vote for Saris lamb, but I like the shrimp papardelle as well.
