The votes are in, and the winners have been selected for OnMilwaukee's Best Dining 2009. The results of this readers' poll, including an editors' pick, are available in this series of articles that run all October long during Dining Month on OnMilwaukee.com.
What began as a family-owned restaurant on Mitchell Street evolved into a Brady Street emporium of Middle Eastern delights. Following in their parents' footsteps, brothers Alaa and Nasser Musa opened the second generation of Casablanca, 728 E. Brady St., serving traditional kabobs, falafel, stuffed grape leaves and shawarma.
Kifta, foule and babaghannoj are highlights of the mostly Middle Eastern menu, along with a few American additions such as the Casablanca burger and fries. Diners can stuff themselves during the vegetarian lunch buffet or Sunday brunch buffet, and then enjoy a traditional tobacco hookah, in a variety of flavors, at the bar.
