Casbah is part of the Big Burrito group. The same small company that brings us Mad Mex.
Casbah is a really unique place with no comparison in Pittsburgh. There is a large outdoor area on the front of the building which is wonderful for warmer summer nights. The interior is hard to describe, very modern, intimate and happening. This place definitely transports you to some place other than Pittsburgh.
Casbah boasts a large wine selection as well as focusing on martinis. Beer wise you will find their contracted Big B house brew as well as international heavyweight Chimay, two of the Lindeman's varieties and several decent micros. Not a huge selection, but a solid dozen or so.
Food like the sister Big B establishments is fresh, made to order and very good. While somewhat expensive ($7+) for a green salad, the quality, presentation, flavor and ingredients are primo, worth the money.
You post dinner dessert at Casbah is much more than chocolate cakes and black coffee. Casbah boasts a large dessert menu that includes four coffee drinks, over a dozen ports, over a dozen dessert wines, cordials & liquers, vodkas, gins, brandies and whiskies. The line is simply overwhelming and delightful.
Casbah is one of those rare gems, where everything comes together perfectly. It's worth giving a look at for a special night out. Their website is informative and includes menus, relative ingredients and pricing info.
