Casa La Femme fatale! We might not be able to to travel to Egypt right now, but we can walk like an Egyptian at Casa La Femme. This hidden West Village gem transports you to an Egyptian wonderland with delicious ancient recipes and beautiful authentic Egyptian design. Many restaurants currently have beautiful outdoor seating. However, Casa La Femme is the only one with Egyptian flair. We are excited to share beautiful West Village outdoor dining with you.
Beautiful Outdoor Dining in the West Village
Casa La Femme is located in the West Village on Charles Street and Greenwich Street. The restaurant is open for dinner from 4:00PM to 11:00PM on Sundays to Wednesdays, 4:00PM to 1:00AM on Thursdays, 4:00PM to 3:00AM on Fridays and Saturdays. Don’t be in de-Nile! You’ll have a fabulous time here.
The outdoor garden features farm grass, vibrant plants, beautiful florals, golden colored tables with luxurious chairs with golden embroidery. Our table featured a gorgeous bouquet of purple and yellow flowers and a bronze lantern.
Our booth faced the restaurant and featured a rustic table, a coral chandelier and a golden paper lantern. It didn’t even feel like we were in New York City.
Casa La Femme also has live music, and we had the pleasure of being seated near the performers.
What to Order to Drink?
Alcohol you later. We started with a round of cocktails: the Quibiscus, Guava Mintini and the Quirita. Our favorite was the Guava Mintini, which had a nice, fruity taste. The Quibiscus was refreshing with flavors of fresh lemon and lime juice. Quirita has a unique flavor profile with the tamarind syrup.
You had me a Bordeaux. We also ordered a 2018 Cheval Noir, which is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc. This medium bodied, earthy French wine has notes of plum and black cherry fruit. It paired nicely with our lamb entree.
What to Order for Dinner?
Colors of the world…. spice up your life. We recommend starting with a platter of Mezzas. We ordered the Babaganoush, Harrisa and Tahini. These dips had a variety of flavor, color and texture. The Harrisa was our favorite, but it was spicy. So order only if you like your dips hot! These dips paired nicely with our cocktails.
For our mains, we shared the Branzino, Mousaka and Lamb Chops. Of course, we also ordered the Sumac Hand Cut Fries.
The mains paired nicely with our Bordeaux.
For dessert, we sampled the Baklava, Kunefa and Baklava Ice cream. Our favorite was the Kunefa. Kunefa is a traditional Middle Eastern dessert made with filo pastry and layered with cheese and nuts. The Baklava was good but the Baklava Ice Cream had a nice twist. We’ll definitely be back-lava for it.
This year, stroll through the West Village and grab dinner at Casa La Femme. You’ll be transported to an Egyptian oasis and enjoy an authentic Egyptian meal without having to leave NYC.
