Casablanca gained worldwide fame through the iconic 1942 film “Casablanca”, starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. Although most of it was shot in Hollywood, the movie’s setting and references to Casablanca have made it an enduring symbol of romance and adventure. Placed in the heart of Casablanca, this restaurant pays homage to this timeless classic film.
From the moment you step in, you are transported to a bygone era of elegance, where love stories unfolded and dreams come true. You are greeted by the warm ambiance, reminiscent of the 1940s. Soft lighting casts a golden glow, and the air is filled with the melodies of classic tunes, expertly played by the pianist here.
To start your gastronomic journey, savor the delicate flavors of Moroccan mezze, a selection of small plates that showcase the diversity of Moroccan cuisine. Indulge in the rich and savory b’stilla, a delicate pastry filled with layers of spiced meat, almonds, and cinnamon, topped with a sprinkle of powdered sugar. Allow the flavors to impress you as you sample the aromatic harira soup, a hearty blend of lentils, chickpeas, and tomatoes, infused with a medley of Moroccan spices.
For the main course, be prepared to be enchanted by the succulent lamb tagine, slow-cooked to perfection with a medley of spices and served with tender vegetables and fluffy couscous. Or, if you prefer seafood, delight in the grilled fish, caught fresh from the nearby shores of Casablanca.
Each dish is a masterpiece, reflecting the passion and dedication of the talented chefs who strive to create an exceptional dining experience.
The experience at Rick’s Café Americain goes beyond the delectable cuisine. Throughout the evening, you’ll be serenaded by the soulful tunes of the resident pianist, adding an extra layer of charm to the ambiance. Sit back, relax, and let the melodies transport you to a world of nostalgia and romance.
