Old-World Egypt Meets New York City
By Toccara Castleman
I woke up in a hurry, as per usual, and just “threw something on.” Big mistake. I would have paid more attention to detail had I realized I’d have the pleasure of dining in such a haven as Casa La Femme.
Put simply, this five-month-old West Village hot spot is gorgeous, and everything, down to a visit to the restrooms—all five of them— is a posh experience.
While the weather outside was wet (gotta love a rainy spring in New York), the atmosphere in Casa was serene and inviting. On warmer evenings, the grand entrance is open, giving patrons seated in the lounge and bar areas the feel of an outdoor patio while still being comfortably nestled inside.
The furniture in Casa is custom designed and heavily influenced by each of the owner’s Greek and Egyptian ethnicities. From the crystal chandeliers hanging above the bar to the intricately painted ceramic tables in the lounge area—no stone was left unturned.
