The former Moroccan Lounge at East Village French institution Casimir will be transformed into Casimir Fondue. The cozy 35-seat annex to the main restaurant will operate as a fondue-only min-restaurant featuring cheese, meat and chocolate fondue. New d├ęcor highlights the warmth of the space, making it the perfect backdrop for Casimir Fondue’s indulgent offerings. This new and exciting concept is the brainchild of new management that is poised to reinvigorate the restaurant, an early pioneer of the East Village dining renaissance. New owner Mario Carta has amassed over a decade of expertise managing and developing restaurant concepts which he plans to utilize in this his latest endeavor.
