Editorial Review: This chic Soho cafe transports guests to its namesake city with its florid details–waitresses wear caftan shirts, white cloths drape from the ceiling, and tea is served in silver kettles. The movie projection of « Casablanca » (could it be anything else?) adds to the charm. Thirty-something patrons–both couples and groups–sample Moroccan sausage, chickpea salad, and spicy olives from small bowls and wicker baskets. Sandwich presses behind the bar crank out paninis, while a case of Payard pastries urges more indulgence.
