a welcome new neighborhood place in cambridge
Had dinner with my family at Casbah, Sari Abul-Jubein's (of Casablanca) new restaurant on New Street behind the Fresh Pond Mall. Now that his liquor license is online, it's a great addition to the area for a reasonably priced dinner out, with a nice array of middle east/mediterranean type dishes. Pulled lamb, greek ragouti and tzatziki were all yummy - also a side dish of couscous with pumpkin seeds in it, a nice surprise. Kofte skewers were much praised around the table as well as kebabs. The room is decorated in warm colors with a nice bar. A front patio promises nice outdoor sitting in the warmer months. A well priced menu means we'll go back again soon, I really recommend this place.
