The Vegetarian Option: Moroccan Eating a World Away at Casaville

The Vegetarian Option Howard Walfish Post a comment

This Moroccan restaurant in Murray Hill is dominated by a large wooden bar, decorated with palm fronds. The air is redolent with spices, and the regulars greeting the staff lend the space the air of bonhomie I would expect from an ex-pat bar halfway across the world. More
