Host a benefit dinner at Casbah

One Thursday each month, Casbah hosts an elegant dinner benefiting a deserving organization. We provide the food, wine and service. Guests are asked to write their checks directly to the beneficiary. Our guests enjoy a great meal, and we have an opportunity to introduce ourselves to new diners.

Chef Dustin Gardner works with the organization to create the perfect Casbah menu for the evening, drawing inspiration from a selected Mediterranean region or seasonal ingredients. Donation minimum is $100 per person, unless otherwise indicated.
