Casa la Femme
Last night I ventured to the Mid-East—well actually just the West Village—to enjoy some cuisine, music and vibe of Egypt with my part Egyptian friend, Engie Hassan at Casa la Femme. Walking in I was delighted by the warm fruity smell of shisha and led to our table by the fireplace where we sat upon velvety seats fit for queens. The dinner was tasty, but far more thrilling was the entertainment—the gorgeous professional figure skater, make-up artist, ballroom- and belly dancer, Valerie; SUCH a sweetheart with the moves of a goddess. This venue would be great with a rowdy group of friends or on a weekend night.
