Nothing more joyous for a Jew like me to hit the
best Moslem restaurants in the evenings as the
Ramadan fast is broken. Casablanca in Bay Ridge
has rghaif, a bread sweetened with orange blossom
water, and the forbidding "Luncheonette" (which
Jim is squeamish about entering) offering
muhallabiya (rice flour pudding). The latter is
on Court Street between Atlantic and Pacific and
has the ambience of a social club, yet serves
Yemenite food which attests to their Indian
influence. A great chef has a deft hand with
spicing and they serve a sweet but perfectly
soothing cardamom infused tea.Good eating in 1998
(and on) to all!
