1.) I love Casbah.
2.) I love Truffles.
Tonight, Tomorrow and Thursday Cashbah in Shadyside (or East Liberty or whatever you call that end of S. Highland) is hosting a Prix Fixe truffle dinner.
The last two times I ate at Cashbah I was in heaven. They patio is amazing and it's HEATED! You can brave the snow and still have an "outdoor dining" in the middle of January.
The food is well prepared and delicious, the service was excellent -- I recommend giving it a try. Pricey -- but with this menu it just might be worth it!
