Casablanca Tea Room (CLOSED)

Restaurants, Moroccan Soho

One might assume that this is just a tea shrine. Wrong. This Moroccan restaurant, with its arresting white interior—gauzy white linen drapes, bejeweled lamps, white leather banquettes—stands out even in fashionable Soho. The food is similarly eye-catching: Lamb broth is served in colorful silver-trimmed ceramic bowls, and tea is poured dramatically into gilded glass tumblers. Our favorite dish, b'steeya, is a pie that layers chicken, eggs, saffron and crushed almonds with flaky phyllo pastry. And if you decide it’s just afternoon tea you want, this is a fine place for that, too.
