Casbah Restaurant/bar has recently opened in Fresh Pond- an area very much in need of a neighborhood place. The food is extremely reasonable in price and portion. This could become a perfect alternative to the pubs in watertown.

        New St, behind Sozio... so far we have tried a skewer plate, with kofta served with stuffed grape leaves, fried eggplant, and baba ghanoush, falafel- which was my favorite! Actually, I think that I have had the falafel twice now. I definitely need to try more of their tapas or sharing plates but I really cant wait to try their burger! (Based on my experience loving the Casablanca burger!)

      2. Is this place related to or replacing Basha?

          Replaced it.

          Is it somehow related to Casablanca?

          1. re: Alcachofa

            It's owned by the same person (Sari) that owns Casablanca.
