Rick's Cafe, Exotic Moroccan Cuisine
Updated: Jul 16, 2019
In 2018, we are expanding our passport series! Now, themes will broaden to encompass destinations, points in history, wine varietals and/or types of spirits.
It's consensus here at Chef's Table, one of our favorite movies is Casablanca. So, why not go to Morocco for the first big Passport of the season?
First off, we welcome guests to dress the part. Any part. Your favorite from the movie or 40's chic.
Arrival is 6pm, you will be greeted with a Moroccan-spiced cocktail and hors d'oeuvres. Dinner will start around 7pm when all guests arrive. Expect a 5 course dinner with some amazing, creative pairings and surprises!
Please make your reservation ahead of time here, and if it's been a while, re-watch the movie ahead of time here (no affiliation).
The night's beverages are all based on famous quotes from the movie! Here's your sneak-peek:
