All through 2008, CASABLANCA commemorated 30 years in Harvard Square. Yes, folks, it was 1977 when this beloved Brattle Street hideaway opened its doors to hungry (and thirsty) students, professors, Cantabridgians and curious out of towners. Since then, all who enter enthusiastically embrace its welcoming atmosphere, and the whimsical one-of-a-kind décor that brings to life Hollywood’s most memorable film romance.

Authors, politicos, scientists, musicians and more flock to Casabalanca’s bar, and foodies are in love with its endlessly creative cuisine with a bent towards the Mediterranean. Times change, yet the classic film theme retains its mysterious and romantic allure, while the restaurant’s menus are totally in synch with the 21st century.
