Chill out at Le Caire
By Isaacny on 11/15/2011
Simply a great lounge. Wonderful local afterwork crowd and great music. You can sense that everyone there seems to know each other bringing together a great community. A really friendly lounge offering great characters, interesting conversation and great music from the DJ's. This is simply a relaxing (hence 'lounge') bar to chill out with a few early drinks. The service is absolutely fine, the food is authentic, and the interior is really cool. You don't always get great drinks/food, comfy surroundings and friendly staff in NY. I'd recommend it... and I work in the industry, so I know.

I was there with my bf on a Thu night, we got one of those vip tables in the corner with floor cushions behind curtains "Very romantic". We started with an appetizer "Falafel combo" and couple of drinks which was very good that we ordered full dinner "Mix grill and shrimp kebob". We stayed there till closing time. The food was delicious, and the hookah experience was nice.
Authentic and cozy spot

They have good selection/variety of appetizers. We tried the spinach pie and falafel and they were fresh and very tasty. Then we shared a mix grill and that was delicious too. We really wanted to try their desserts but we were both full. It's a nice spot for a nice dinner or a date and would definitely recommend it.
I am a vegetarian myself.

The choices are impressive, however most of the time, they are not even available. The hummos is not authentic, it tastes like it just came out of a can.
Impressive vegetarian choices

As an East villager who lived in the area for almost 10 years this hidden spot on east 3rd street is my new favorite hangout place I think it can be intimate or very social and partying. I went there early on Thursday and took advantage of their happy hour deals, our waitress was friendly and offered recommendations. As a vegetarian I was impressed with the appetizers and salad I had. Later on there was a belly dance show and the dancer had everyone in the lounge get up and dance. The DJ was playing some unique arabic and house mixes that create a perfect ambiance to dance as well. 18% service charge was automatically added to the bill which I think is becoming usual in NYC. I had an amazing time and definitely I'll be back with more friends.
